There were three Talk TV decisions released today on OTA television, simsub and mobile broadcasting. I blogged about it for TV, Eh? over here.

However, as the infographic shows, we have a lot more decisions to come so it’s hard to say what the impact will really be till we’ve seen them all.
Update: For a very thorough review of the issues and potential negative impact of the Superbowl Simsub decision, please read Michael Hennessy here.
A straightforward, small portion immediately included would not be
