The delays, the FCC ruled, were “unforeseeable and beyond their control.” The stations are: Denver, Colo.'s KMGH-TV; KCNC-TV and KUSA-TV; WBBM-TV, Chicago, Ill.; WVIT-TV, New Britain, Conn.; WTVJ-TV, Miami, Fla.; and WTIC-TV and WFSB-TV, both in Hartford, Conn.

All of the stations were originally required to be on-the-air with a digital signal by November 1999. All have been granted previous extensions.
