PBS will remain on the air in rural areas thanks to T-Mobile

PBS announced today that T-Mobile has agreed to foot the bill for public broadcasting’s translators to move to new frequencies, which they’ll have to do in order to stay on the air after the Federal Communications Commission’s incentive auction. […] Because the FCC isn’t providing funding for translators to be repackaged, 38 million Americans, largely in rural areas, were at risk of losing access to PBS if those broadcast facilities shut down. – Mallory Locklear, Engadget http://engt.co/2s6mB0S
