Last month we reported on a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) advancing a number of proposals likely to affect the future of LPTV/TV translator operations, particularly following the spectrum repack. As we mentioned there, the FCC has given LPTV and TV translator licensees a lot to think about but not much time to do their thinking. The NPRM has now been published in the Federal Register, which means that the comment deadlines have been set – so we now know just how little time is available. Comments on the FCC’s proposals are due by December 29, 2014, and replies are due by January 12, 2015. Note, however, that a two-week extension of those deadlines has already been requested, and we understand that there’s an excellent chance that that request will be granted. Check back here for updates.
