Washington, DC, 20036
Commercial television, digital Class A television, and digital LPTV stations must by December 1, 2018 electronically file FCC Form 2100, Schedule G with the FCC, reporting whether or not they have provided ancillary or supplementary services in the past year. Concurrent with its filing, if a digital station provided feeable ancillary or supplementary services during the 12-month period ending on the preceding September 30, the station is required to pay the FCC five percent of the gross revenue from such services. The FCC has proposed eliminating this filing requirement for stations that did not provide feeable ancillary or supplementary services in the prior year, so stations should check to see if this requirement has been modified prior to preparing their 2018 report. See Item of Note IX above for additional information. Note that because this filing deadline falls on a weekend, submission of this item to the FCC may be made on December 3.
