TV Post-Auction Procedures Workshop Scheduled

Posted on February 24th, 2017 by

With the Incentive Auction scheduled to officially end on March 31, 2017 (with the end of the Forward Auction Assignments Phase), the FCC is expected to issue its Auction Closing and Channel Reassignment Notice in April 2017, officially staring the 90-day period for repacked stations to file for new channel construction permits and remit reimbursement expense estimates.

The FCC will hold a workshop on Monday, March 13, 2017 (time to be announced) to review procedures related to the post-auction broadcast transition. Additional details on how stations can tune in to the workshop will be posted on the FCC’s website in coming days.
