Nothing to do with the FCC Reverse/Forward Auction, yesterday, the FCC reinstated the 50% UHF ownership discount rule, which was (temporarily) eliminated in September 2016.  This rule gave broadcast group owners the ability to tally the coverage areas of their UHF stations at 50% of what it actually is.  There is currently a 39% coverage limit imposed on every broadcast group in the U.S..

     This rule change and the possibility of eliminating the 39% limit is sending Sinclair Broadcast Group on a purchasing spree of other groups.  Sinclair is buying Bonten's 14 stations for $240 million.  Sinclair is also trying to buy all of Tribune's stations.
