FLORIDA DIGITAL-ONLY TV WANTS BACK ON CABLE
The owner of WHDT, a digital-only station in the West Palm Beach, Fla., market asked the FCC to force the local Comcast cable system to resume carriage of the station, contending that Comcast had dropped the station last fall without giving the required 30-day notice to subscribers, municipal officials and the station itself. Comcast dropped WHDT from its lineup on Oct. 11, 2007, even though the station has had must-carry status since 2002, claiming that the station was no longer providing a good, over-the-air signal to its headend as required by the must-carry rules.
