On October 10, 2014, the Commission released the Third Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the Incentive Auction proceeding, addressing issues relating to digital Low Power Television and TV translator stations. Among the issues addressed were the extension of the current September 1, 2015, digital transition deadline, allowing channel sharing between LPTV and TV translator stations, the creation of a digital replacement translator service, and the displacement of stations as a result of the Incentive Auction repack. The Notice also invited commenters to propose other measures that the Commission should consider in this connection. Comments were received on January 12, 2015, and reply comments on February 2, 2015. To facilitate public input and understanding of issues relating to the impact of the incentive auction and repacking on LPTV and TV translator stations, the Media Bureau will host a LEARN webinar on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 2:00 p.m EST.
