The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) Incentive Auction Task Force has released revised reverse auction opening bid prices for broadcasters that have been recalculated to reflect corrected station information and constraint files. In order to provide broadcasters with at least 60 days after the release of the recalculated prices to evaluate whether to apply to participate in the reverse auction, the Task Force announced a revised filing window for FCC Form 177, the reverse auction application form. The FCC Form 177 filing window will open at 12:00 noon Eastern Time on December 8, 2015, and close at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time on January 12, 2016.
Given the revised reverse auction filing window, the Task Force also announced a revised filing window for Form 175, the forward auction application form. The FCC Form 175 filing window will open at 12:00 noon Eastern Time on January 26, 2016, and close at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time on February 9, 2016.
