Post-Auction LPTV Displacement Window Announced

Posted on February 26th, 2018 by

The FCC has announced a Special Displacement Window for LPTV and TV translator stations from April 10, 2018 – May 15, 2018, and made location and channel data available in advance of the window so stations can make informed decisions about seeking alternative channels. The FCC’s data also lists those LPTV and TV translator stations that are being displaced (based on current parameters).

Every LPTV and TV translator station that wants to preserve its operation should retain a consulting engineer to study the FCC’s data, determine whether the station is displaced, and if so, prepare and file an application in the filing window. The FCC is hosting a webinar on the channel study data released in advance of the Special Displacement Window. It is scheduled for Wednesday, February 28, 2018 from 1-2p.m. ET. You can review the webinar agenda here. It can be watched live or in recorded form.
