Yesterday, the FCC extended the deadline for LPTV stations and TV translators to file for reimbursement for their expenses incurred in changing channels because of the repacking of the TV band following the TV incentive auction. These stations were given an extra month until November 15 to file these requests. See our articles here and here for more information about the reimbursement program. It is important to note that FM stations, which also can file for reimbursement of expenses incurred from having to change their facilities co-located on TV towers as a result of the repacking, have not been granted any extension. FM stations still need to seek reimbursement by October 15, the original filing deadline. FM stations seeking reimbursement need to be working now to meet next week’s deadline.
