A brand new Year, a New Website for the Incentive Auction

Using the start of the first-ever incentive auction lower than 90 days away, consumers and other serious parties nationwide want to better determine what this auction means for them. So the public is fully informed, these days we unveil a new informational internet site for the incentive auction.

The website includes a range of materials that explain why the particular Commission is conducting the auction, how the auction can benefit the public, how the process works, and what consumers will have to do to continue enjoying over-the-air television stations once the auction concludes.

The new web site also features a “Frequently Asked Questions” section for consumers, a calendar of key dates and activities, a “Resources” page where the public can easily find key incentive auction decisions and documents, and detailed primers on the reverse and ahead auctions. For potential participants, we’ve also provided a link to the FCC’s official incentive auction (Auction 1000) page from which they can access the form, tutorials, and related information.

The Task Power will update the site as new information becomes available. The site will also act as a key component of the Commission’s post-auction consumer education efforts to ensure a smooth changeover for over-the-air TV viewers. All of us invite you to visit the website and welcome your comments and questions.
