The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: McCaw pursuing pay-TV spectrum

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: McCaw pursuing pay-TV spectrum: "Craig McCaw, who became a billionaire by building the first nationwide U.S. wireless company and selling it to AT&T, is seeking licenses for wireless spectrum that has potential for high-speed Internet access.
McCaw disclosed in a regulatory filing that he formed a Kirkland company, Flux U.S., in October and acquired rights to a type of spectrum originally designated for broadcasting pay television.
'Given McCaw's knowledge of the industry and his track record, I would say he has done a lot of strategic thinking along the lines of some of the enhanced uses of this old-fashioned spectrum,' said Jay Ireland, a telecommunications attorney at the law firm Cole, Raywid & Braverman. "
