OK, so correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I can tell of these statements. A Canadian station can opt out of regulation, then try to negotiate a fee for carrying their signal, and if they can't come to an agreement, then request blackout of any broadcasts they own rights to.
If this is correct, then is it safe to say, that the BDU would only have to blackout the originating US network feed in the areas that they would be able to reach OTA?
This should then be similar to the simsib rules. The Canadian networks shouldn't be allowed to force my BDU to blackout any shows in area's where they can't broadcast these shows OTA.
