Revised DTS Rules for Class A TV and LPTV

On January 19, 2021, the Commission released a Report and Order (R&O) in its proceeding to address technical issues that may impede the adoption of distributed transmission system (DTS) by a broadcast television station. The R&O created new DTS rules for Class A television and low power television (LPTV) stations. On April 7, 2023, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the form changes associated with the DTS rule changes for Class A television and LPTV stations.

The effective date for these changes is May 18, 2023.
