As we wrote about in August on CommLawBlog, Low Power TV (LPTV), TV Translator Stations, and FM stations intending to request reimbursement for expenses incurred as a result of the repack of full-power and Class A television stations were required to file their Initial Reimbursement Form (Form 2100, Schedule 399) by October 15, 2019. Now the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) has announced in a Public Notice that the deadline to file the reimbursement forms for LPTV and TV Translator stations is pushed back from October 15 to November 14, 2019 (11:59 PM).
Please note: this only applies to LPTV/TV Translators filing reimbursement forms, not FM stations. The 11:59 PM, October 15, 2019 deadline is still in place for FM broadcast stations.
Additional details on eligibility requirements and what to include on the initial Schedule 399 are available in our August blog post. Continue to check CommLawBlog for any announcements or changes and contact your counsel should any specific questions arise.
