S. audiences. Local radio and TV stations may also transmit syndicated programs obtained directly from program producers or distributors without going through any network. Many stations also produce their own programming, especially local news, traffic information, and weather. Commercial stations sell their own advertising time, with locally originated advertisements transmitted in addition to network- or syndicator-originated advertising. Non-commercial stations are often members of content networks or syndication services that are tailored for non-commercial operations, which offer programs, underwriting announcements, and other opportunities for monetization of content that conform to FCC rules governing such facilities.

This is common in radio, but only occurs in the smallest television markets, where there are not enough stations on the air to carry all networks. S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

ISDB-T will eventually replace analog television broadcasting in the countries where it is used (and in some cases, it has already done so). A variant of ISDB-T known as SBTVD (Sistema Brasileiro de Televisão Digital) has been adopted by Brazil, Argentina, and Peru and, at this writing, is expected to be adopted by other South American countries also. The main variation is in the use of more advanced high-efficiency video and audio codecs compared to the older ISDB-T standard. Unlike ATSC and DVB formats, the ISDB standard is not named after the organization that created it, which in ISDB’s case is the Association of Radio Industries and Businesses (ARIB), a public service corporation chartered by the Japanese government in 1995.
