Cable operators are generally required to carry local television stations on their cable systems in a tier of service provided to every subscriber without degrading the television station's signal.
The law governing retransmission consent generally prohibits cable operators and other multichannel video programming distributors from retransmitting the signal of a commercial television station, radio station or low power station without the prior consent of the station whose signal is being transmitted, unless the broadcaster has chosen must carry.

Tom Verlaine and Richard Hell began Television as a combination of proto-punk energy and poetic musings, but soon their paths would diverge.
Verlaine and Television were originals in 1977, and Marquee Moon still sounds special today.
You can hear them defining punk and new wave: "I get your point/You're so sharp" from "See No Evil" pretty much invented the new wave lyric, and the occasional afterbeat guitars and and high hat shuffles show them experimenting with reggae before The Clash brought it to the punk masses.
