DTV Services Report Goes Away For Most

On Friday, the FCC publicly released a Report and Order eliminating TV stations’ annual obligation to report whether they have provided feeable ancillary or supplementary services on their spectrum during the past year unless they have actually provided such services. The order was originally slated for discussion and a vote at this week’s FCC Open Meeting, but the commission wound up adopting this widely supported change early, unanimously voting for it on circulation.
