Confirm your TV Contact Information

Posted on November 30th, 2016 by

A month ago, we wrote about the FCC’s Media Bureau having issued a notice reminding all television licensees of the importance of having accurate contact information on file with the FCC. We wanted to re-emphasize that, and therefore include this explanation and reminder for those who might have missed it.

When the auction ends, the FCC will send a confidential notice to TV stations about channel reassignments. For stations that filed a Form 177 to become eligible to participate in the auction, the confidential notice will be sent to the contact address provided in that form. Any stations that did not file a Form 177 will receive channel reassignment information at the address contained in the Licensing and Management System (LMS). Contact information can be easily changed by either amending the Form 177 or logging in to LMS. At a minimum, check your station’s contact information to be sure it is accurate.
