WHAT IS LOW POWER TELEVISION?
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) created the Low-Power Television (LPTV) service in 1982 to provide opportunities for locally-oriented television service in small communities. LPTV service offers a less expensive and more flexible way of delivering programming tailored to the interests of viewers than traditional full-service/power TV stations.
LPTV stations transmit on one of the standard VHF or UHF television channels. From a viewing standpoint, most LPTV stations are indistinguishable from a full power station. LPTV stations have “secondary spectrum priority” to full-service stations. This means LPTV stations must not cause interference to the reception of existing or future full-service television stations, must accept interference from full-service stations, and must yield to new full-service stations where interference occurs. The information above was adapted from the FCC’s LPTV Factsheet, which can be found in its entirety at http://transition.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/lptv.pdf .
