    You don't have to have satellite tv either, but that hasn't stopped the FCC from stepping in.

    The difference is that you can generally either get satellite TV or cable TV if you want more than then handful of local tv stations. Not much choice.

    With radio, you can not only get tons of local stations in most places with just the standard terrestrial radio, but you can also get music from all sorts of sources now like CDs or iPods.

    Eventually Cable TV, Satellite TV and Radio, Clear Channel, all the major TV networks an the FCC itself will all be owned by one company - Brawndo (it's got electrolytes).

    And of course the larger percent of the population will find that fine and dandy..

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennessee_Titans#cite_ref-1

    Mike Keith is the team's play-by-play announcer, and former Titans tight end Frank Wycheck provides color commentary.[1] Most preseason games are televised on WKRN, the ABC affiliate in Nashville.

    The Titans are the only team which has not made its radio broadcasts available for retransmission on Sirius Satellite Radio, meaning games are not available at all outside of the local market areas of the affiliate stations.[2]



    I guess Bud just wants to get paid.
    I don't imagine Sirius offers much for it.
