DTV Station Status per FCC CDBS: December 19, 2004:

  • Licensed (LIC): 640 (+5)

  • Construction Permit: (CP) 716 (-10)

  • CP Modification (CP MOD) 417 (+4)

  • STA (All variations) 1011 (+3)

  • STA (Modifications) 118 (+2)

  • Applications (minus rule making) 136 (-10)

Rule making -- Digital channel changes

  • Pending Applications 25 (-1)

  • Grants 151 (+2)

  • Dismissed 0 (-0-)

(Change from Dec. 5, 2004 listing)

Note: 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 license, 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.

You may download a spreadsheet showing all current DTV entries in the FCC CDBS TV engineering database filesfrom www.xmtr.com/fcc/dtvdb.zip. All CDBS database files used for the spreadsheets carry a date of Dec. 5, 2004.
