NAB Calls For Free Access to Premier Sporting Events
The National Association of Broadcasters Tuesday adopted a
resolution calling for Americans to continue to receive free access to major
televised sporting events, including college football’s Bowl Championship
Series games, which will begin airing on ESPN in 2011.
“Broadcasters continue to support the rights of all
Americans to have free access to telecasts of major sporting events,
particularly those of publicly funded educational institutions,” the resolution
states. “The NAB Television Board of Directors hereby directs NAB staff to work
with policymakers to educate them on the importance of ensuring that no
segments of society are disenfranchised from this highly valued programming.”
