Responsibility of broadcasters


Do television broadcasters have any responsibility to keep a quality of service for their viewing public?  And when there is something that would affect this quality, do they have to notify the viewers?


Ever since we have gotten our HDTV, we have noticed when the broadcasters do something to their towers.  For example, our NBC station is having a problem with their transmitter.  Interference with digital signals is more noticeable than analog signals.




As more and more people are watching HDTV, will broadcasters be more willing to keep the HDTV transmitters up at full power?  Or will they be willing to notify their viewers?  If not, I can see that people would move over to cable or satellite to get their local channels.
