Good News for television stations such as WBBZ-TV-56 (RF17) Buffalo; the FCC could be reducing the amount of spectrum (down to 114 MHz), reducing the amount of stations (2) in some markets to buy back their broadcast license.  WBBZ-TV is not protected from having its 6MHz confiscated without compensation as it is a non class-A LPTV.

Bad news is for speculations such as the new owners of WBNF-CD-15 Buffalo who might not receive as much money as they had banked on through the auction.

Nothing new in this article, just an official statement from your friendly neighbourhood FCC.

The FCC chairman tells a Senate oversight hearing that the commission "will soon release for discussion and comment transition models to calculate the order and schedule of station relocation efforts” and they will reflect input from broadcasters, wireless companies, tower crews, equipment manufacturers and others.

Don't you mean WBXZ-LP? WBBZ is MeTV, one of my favourites.
XP Pro(HTPCs)Windows 7 workstation and PCLinuxOS as a backup in case M$ doesn't go back to a proper desktop OS.

Yes,

I fumbled, it should have been WBXZ-LP not WBBZ-TV

I always get those two mixed up for some reason.

Thanks for the reminder.

Starting today the FCC is boosting the number of rounds per day in the broadcast incentive auction from two to three, which means it is boosting the rate at which it will be lowering prices, as it does by some percentage each round.  At that three-rounds-per-day rate, the auction would last no longer than Oct. 13.

     The second phase of the reverse auction will look to clear 114 MHz, the FCC's next highest clearing target. That means reclaiming two fewer UHF channels, which means the FCC will have more places to repack broadcasters, which means some stations that were provisionally winning after Stage 1 will become “unfrozen” in Stage 2 and will be presented decreasing price offers during the bidding rounds. This process will result in lowering the overall costs of clearing spectrum for wireless use."

     The FCC wants to remind broadcasters to keep their eyes trained on that "unfreeze" point. "Bidders with stations that begin Stage 2 with the status of “Frozen – Pending Catch-Up” [stations frozen in the first stage, but only frozen in stage 2 until the point at which they froze in stage 1] must be on their toes, as this status can change from one round to the next and will change by the end of the new stage," they said. "Remember – if a station’s status changes to “Bidding,” and the bidder fails to submit a bid for that station, the system interprets this as a bid to drop out and could lead to the station exiting the auction.

     The commission said that comments on the plan (DA No. 16-1095; Docket No. 12-268 16-306) are due Oct. 31; reply comments are due Nov. 15.

If you're interested on how TV stations are going to be reimbursed to switch to 3.0 or how much new equipment will cost (Catalog of Potential Expenses and Estimated Costs), there is a link inside this article you should read.

( Example:  A 24.5 kW High VHF – Air Cooled Solid State Transmitter will cost approximately $650 000 (U.S.)].
