UHF Discount Comment Due Date Set

November 15, 2013

The rule that now counts one UHF TV station as half of a whole is up for target practice at the Federal Communications Commission. The commission recently released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to eliminate the so-called “UHF discount,” under which a UHF license is discounted by 50 percent when considering media ownership caps in a given market. The NPRM has now been published in the Federal Register, triggering the 60-day comment period. Comments on the dockets, Nos. 13-236 and 13-123, are now due Dec. 16, 2013.
