The Federal Communications Commission is considering La Plata County's petitions requesting a market modification that would allow satellite providers to offer subscribers in Southwest Colorado access to Denver television programming. We are expecting a decision by March 2, and will be sure to let you all know the outcome as soon as we hear it!
After La Plata County submitted its petitions requesting a market modification, there were two opposition statements filed by New Mexico broadcasters, and La Plata County filed responses with the FCC to those statements, reaffirming our justification for a market modification. To see these and any documents related to the market modification petition, visit the FCC's site and enter "La Plata County" in the "Search Full Text" field.
Thanks to all of you who filed comments supporting La Plata County's petitions requesting a market modification to allow satellite providers to offer Denver broadcast television to subscribers in Southwest Colorado. Your voices have added significantly to this enduring effort to bring Denver television to our community.
We will continue to keep you updated on next steps, opportunities for feedback and other events related to this work to bring Denver TV to La Plata County residents. In the meantime, feel free to contact Megan Graham, La Plata County public affairs officer, with any questions or comments.
Thank you for your interest in this issue!
