The Television Collaborative Bandwidth Optimization (“TV Bandwidth”) Program encourages Grantees in overlapped coverage markets to coordinate broadcast services to the community in a cooperative rather than competitive way. An agreement to use bandwidth more creatively and efficiently will increase and improve public service to the community. In addition, a collaborative agreement will create more cost effective use of existing Grantee infrastructure that can ultimately result in reduced expenses as well as new sources of revenue.
