This week, NAB launched important initiatives to support the broadcast industry into the future. In case you missed it, here’s another look at this week’s news.

C-band Webinar: As part of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) reallocation of the C-band, operators of registered C-band earth stations can choose to either have their actual costs of relocation covered, or can elect to receive a “lump sum” payment determined by the FCC. Earth station operators will need to think carefully – and quickly – about the pros and cons of each approach, as elections to choose the lump sum payment must be filed no later than August 31. This panel of experts will discuss considerations associated with this choice as well as how to make the election procedurally.
