FCC Approves Early Return of WPXJ-TV Out-of-Core DTV Channel

In the Second DTV Periodic Review, the FCC allowed stations not affiliated with ABC, CBS, Fox or NBC with out-of-core DTV channels to surrender their out-of-core DTV channel and flash cut to DTV on their analog channel before the end of the DTV transition. Paxson station WPXJ in Batavia, N.Y. was allowed to surrender its DTV channel 53 and flash-cut to DTV on its NTSC channel 51.
