LPTV Freeze Lifted for Displacement and Digital Companion Channel Applications

Posted on March 28th, 2019 by

Beginning April 18, 2019, LPTV and TV translator stations will be able to file displacement applications and digital companion channel applications, pursuant to this recently issued public notice announcement.

Except for the narrow lift of the displacement application freeze for stations that were impacted by the full power and Class A repack, the freeze on displacement applications has been in effect since 2014. Applications for digital companion channels for stations that are still operating in analog have been frozen since 2017.
