APPLICATIONS (minus rule making and channel/service elections) 803 (+6)

Note: These totals do not include digital class A TV, low power TV or TV translator entries. The total will be greater than the number of DTV stations as some stations have licenses, construction permits and applications on file. Some stations also have licenses, construction permits or applications for backup facilities (auxiliary broadcast). Subtracting the STA Modification number from the number in STA (All variations) will give a more accurate indication of the number of DTV stations operating under STA, although STA records sometimes remain in the CDBS long after the licensed facility is operational.

A spreadsheet (dtvdb.zip) showing all DTV entries (including digital LPTV and translator) in the FCC CDBS TV engineering database files and a spreadsheet (tvdb.zip) showing the entire TV engineering database (large file - over 2 MB) extracted from the CDBS are posted at www.xmtr.com/fcc/. The March 11, 2009 spreadsheets are available now.

“Will there be a shift from coax to fibre? Or a mixture between the two which will require hybrid solutions to be implemented?”
