FCC to accept new LPTV applciations

The FCC has announced a filing window for new digital LPTV stations and major changes to existing LPTV stations. (including changes to analog LPTVs)

On August 25, a window will open for rural LPTVs. "Rural" is defined as places 121km or more from the central cities in the 100 largest Nielsen television markets. The smallest city on the list is Charleston, South Carolina.

On January 25, 2010, another window will open without geographic restriction.

Applications for new analog LPTV stations will not be accepted in either window. However, existing analog LPTVs may apply for major changes.

The Public Notice doesn't say how long the windows will be open.
