On December 18, 2015, the Commission released a Third Report and Order and Fourth Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, In the Matter of Amendment of Parts 73 and 74 of the Commission’s Rules to Establish Rules for Digital Low Power Television and Television Translator Stations, MB Docket No. 03-185, FCC 15-175. This document contains final rules and policies for a digital-to-digital replacement digital replacement translator to permit full power television stations to continue to provide service to viewers that may have otherwise lost service as a result of the station being “repacked” in the Commission’s incentive auction process. 47 CFR Section 74.787(a)(5)(v) states that an application for an digital to digital replacement translator may be filed by a full power television station that can demonstrate that a portion of its digital service area will not be served by its full, post-incentive auction digital facilities. The service area of the replacement translator shall be limited to only a demonstrated loss area. However, an applicant for a replacement digital television translator may propose a de minimis expansion of its full power pre-transition analog service area upon demonstrating that it is necessary to replace its post-incentive auction digital loss area.
