TV Broadcaster Relocation Fund Workshop

June 25, 2012, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EDT
445 12th St., SW, Commission Meeting Room, Washington, DC

On June 1, 2012, the Commission announced details for its June 25, 2012 repacking cost workshop.  The focus of this workshop was the design of the Commission’s program to reimburse the costs that some broadcasters are likely to incur as a result of channel reassignments in connection with the repacking authorized by the 2012 Spectrum Act.  The Act established a $1.75 billion TV Broadcaster Relocation Fund from which the Commission is to reimburse those costs when the broadcast spectrum is repacked following the FCC’s first incentive auction.  Panelists discussed the categories of costs that they believe the FCC should consider when designing the program.  They also discussed possible models and lessons learned from similar programs that paid the relocation expenses of spectrum incumbents that were assigned new frequencies.
