The Senate Communications Subcommittee announced late Tuesday it was delaying the start of its Nov. 17 retransmission-consent hearing by a half hour.

The hearing had been scheduled for 2:30 p.m., but was moved to 3 p.m. the committee said in an e-mail. No word on why there was a delay, but a committee source said the move was due to a scheduling conflict.

As a result, C-SPAN will have to adjust its streaming schedule. The public-affairs network plans to carry the hearing live on its website,, it announced in an e-mail late Tuesday.
