On April 18, Commission’s Incentive Auction Task Force and Media Bureau announced that it was extending the special filing window for displaced Low Power Television and TV Translator Stations for a few extra weeks. The window for filing such applications will now close on June 1 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. The original due date was May 15.
The extension was to “allow applicants further time to analyze data and other information and to prepare or make changes to their applications accordingly.”
This action applies to only LPTV stations and TV translators being displaced from their current channel as a result of the TV spectrum repack. As we’ve previously written about, an LPTV is considered “operating” for purposes of eligibility for this window if it was constructed and licensed as of April 13, 2017.
