Comment : The Over-the-Airheads (OtA) have mostly vacated Las Vegas casinos and gone home after a week of crowing and whining. They crowed about better newscasts, the $s (maybe) to be made from spectrum, streaming and OtA’s version of TV everywhere, MVPD redefinition (lots of broadcasters multicast), ad dollars and the coming bonanza of an election. They whined about Comcast/TWC, Wheeler, repacking, cable news, retransmission challenges and upstream compensation, small cable operators, big cable operators, DBS, repacking, small $s from spectrum (show floor chant: “more, more, more money!”), the FCC and more.
