Prepared for the 7th Space Congress, April 1970, this paper explores the opportunities for providing new TV broadcast services and a variety of social benefits from broadcasting with satellites and CATV. The relative costs of the various alternatives are outlined, and new regulatory and operational policies are suggested. The paper is intended to ease international concern about the control of satellite broadcasting in order to gain support for permissive frequency allocations. Also, it attempts to stimulate domestic vested interests by outlining a wealth of novel opportunities available under the suggested new policies. 13 pp. Ref.
