DTV Ancillary/Supplementary Report Due December 1st

Posted on November 30th, 2016 by

Owners of digital LPTV, Class A or full power television stations that are reading this and have not yet filed their required annual DTV Ancillary/Supplementary Report have one more day to do so. The report requires stations to declare whether they have provided any ancillary or supplementary services during the last 12 months. Those include computer software distribution, data transmissions, teletext, interactive materials, aural messages, paging services, audio signals, or subscription video — basically anything other than free over-the-air broadcasts. If a station has done so, it must remit 5% of any revenue received from such services to the FCC via a separately filed fee remittance.

The form is known as Schedule 2100(g) and can be found in the list of forms available for filing in the Licensing Management System. Log in with your FRN and password.
