    DTV America does that in a number of cases. They hold licenses but they are not on the air. In fact, the FCC just reached a consent decree with them over this very issue.

    https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-17-1058A1.pdf

    Hopefully the outcome of this will be that the stations start operating.

    Looks like a very few of the licenses are to be allowed to continue. Anyone live near Crozet, VA?

    I was getting tired of them not doing anything with not broadcasting and saying they have all these channels. Sorry for putting this in the wrong thread trip.

    Actually, unless I'm reading the document incorrectly, the list of stations to be relinquished seems relatively small compared to the total number of station holdings...

    Also Jefferson City,MO future one and at least KOIB Columbia,MO will be adding channels in the future but hopefully ones that KC doesn't have yet same with KQML other then SBN that KC already has. Also they haven't updated their site to include KQML and others.

    DTV AMERICA needs to slow its role down. Most the channels they launch I have already. I have GetTV, AntTV, Laff, Grit, H&I. Why would they launch networks we already have. I rather have all the networks they launch on a full power anyway....
