Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule; correction.


The Federal Communications Commission published in the Federal Register of November 14, 2002, a document concerning application of network non-duplication, syndicated exclusivity, and sports blackout rules to satellite retransmissions of broadcast signals. Inadvertently, the instruction that notifications given pursuant to § 76.127 must be received by the satellite carrier was inserted incorrectly. This document corrects that error.


Effective March 25, 2003. An announcement of effective date is published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register.
