MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The future of television is bright and we want to ensure it stays that way. Congress is currently considering action as part of the debt and budget negotiations that could threaten your ability to view local, free over-the-air television.

The federal government is making decisions about how the airwaves are used, and these decisions would impact your ability to receive local news, public safety information and high-quality programs you value currently - free and over-the-air.

This congressional action seeks to reallocate some TV channels – through a process known as spectrum incentive auctions. Some federal regulators are calling for the reallocation of some of the broadcast airwaves to benefit the wireless industry, as they want to build out their networks.

We broadcasters are fighting to ensure any government decision's about spectrum do not deny TV viewers access to the great services they currently receive and those advances in broadcasting on the horizon.

Tell your member of Congress to protect local TV as they consider ways to auction TV channels, by emailing or calling them today at: 1-800-200-4372 or emailing www.futureoftv.org.

We appreciate your feedback.
