1. The Commission renews the broadcasting licences for the television programming undertakings set out in the appendix to this decision from 1 April 2011 to 31 August 2012, subject to the terms and conditions in effect under the current licences.
2. This decision does not dispose of any substantive issues that may exist with respect to the renewal of these licences. The Commission will consider at a later date the renewal of these licences, and interested parties will have an opportunity to comment at the appropriate time.
3. The Commission notes that it does not intend to renew authorizations for full-power analog transmitters operating in the mandatory markets or on channels 52 to 69 outside the mandatory markets beyond 31 August 2011. By that time, the Commission expects licensees to have the necessary authority to broadcast in digital. In addition, the Commission imposes the following condition of licence on the stations listed in the appendix to this decision that operate in mandatory markets or on channels 52 to 69 outside the mandatory markets:
Unless otherwise authorized by the Commission, the licensee shall not transmit analog television signals after 31 August 2011 in mandatory markets designated as such by the Commission in Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2011-184 or transmit television signals on channels 52 to 69.
4. The Commission also notes that pursuant to Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2010-69, it does not intend to renew authorizations to operate transitional digital transmitters included in these licences, beyond 31 August 2011.
