§ 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.
