Entravision Proposes Sat Merger Competitor
August 22, 2007 at 5:44 AM (PT)
ENTRAVISION, in a filing with the FCC last week, not only opposed the SIRIUS/XM merger, but said that if the merger were approved, the agency should allow existing terrestrial licenses to form a consortium and proceed to establish and operate a qualified competitor. ENTRAVISION says it's "prepared to lead a consortium of as many terrestrial licenses as wish to join in providing such a competitor."
In the filing, ENTRAVISION also "submits that the Commission should adopt a plan for the resumption of competition at the earliest possible time," and asks the FCC to require SIRIUS and XM to relinquish their spectrum so that competition can resume.
