The tax protests of the satellite TV providers

I read today that DirecTV has sued Tennessee over the denial to satellite television of the same tax benefits bestowed on cable television, and the story included a link to this industry website, which includes a page protesting unfair taxation of satellite service in Virginia. Since the satellite providers don't pay franchise fees or pole attachment fees or right-of-way fees, I wonder whether this is all a bunch of hooey.
