The FCC is allowing more interference into broadcast spectrum, channels 2-51, both with this white space, smart radio option and the broadband over power lines initiative.

Expect to see talk of selling off these channels after the transition debacle to come and the number of those who still depend on over the air broadcasting, still thought by some to be around 13-15%, has been whittled down to something even more pathetic by a cable and satellite onslaught that will accompany the transition. They will want to take advantage of the transition disaster to pick up as many new customers as posible.

Some political type is going to see potential in championing the selling off of this spectrum around the middle of 2009 or even earlier depending on how much pain the transition inflicts.
