As we reported in August 2018, the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC” or “Commission”) at that time released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking laying out how it would parcel out reimbursement funds for Low Power TV (LPTV), TV Translator, and FM stations impacted by the post-incentive auction repacking of full-power television stations. The Commission has now adopted an Order with the final rules governing such reimbursements. While the rules are largely as proposed in the NPRM, there are a few crucial differences. This post provides an updated report on how reimbursements will be issued.
