§ 101.1403   Broadcast carriage requirements.

   MVDDS licensees are not required to provide all local television
   channels to subscribers within its area and thus are not required to
   comply with the must-carry rules, nor the local signal carriage
   requirements of the Rural Local Broadcast Signal Act. See Multichannel
   Video and Cable Television Service Rules, Subpart D (Carriage of
   Television Broadcast Signals), 47 CFR 76.51-76.70. If an MVDDS licensee
   meets the statutory definition of Multiple Video Programming
   Distributor (MVPD), the retransmission consent requirement of section
   325(b)(1) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (47 U.S.C.
   325(b)(1)) shall apply to that MVDDS licensee. Any MVDDS licensee that
   is an MVPD must obtain the prior express authority of a broadcast
   station before retransmitting that station's signal, subject to the
   exceptions contained in section 325(b)(2) of the Communications Act of
   1934, as amended (47 U.S.C. 325(b)(2)). Network nonduplication,
   syndicated exclusivity, sports blackout, and leased access rules shall
   not be imposed on MVDDS licensees.
