What started as an effort to bring High Definition feeds of Major Broadcast Network Television into the Utica DMA has now become a national effort to allow competition between neighboring DMA\'s. In an effort to eliminate Government granted monopolies and unfair advantages during retransmission consent agreements we are starting a petition to be delivered to Congressional Representatives and Elected Officials to urge them to change the current laws. By helping effect change in the current system you will: A) Have more programming choices as a viewer, including possible carriage of HD signals when your local station doesn\'t broadcast them and B) help keep programming costs down by allowing competition between neighboring markets during retransmission consent agreements or disputes.


Our cause was initially started as a grassroots campaign. We were relying on the broadcast stations to show good faith and serve the public interest by temporarily allowing neighboring markets High Definition feeds into their market until such a time when they were capable of broadcasting HD themselves. They have either refused or blatantly ignored or requests for information. Please visit for all the details!
