The FCC had an auction where TV station owners could sell spectrum to wireless services. Only 175 stations sold any spectrum, less than 2% of the approximate 8000 U.S. stations. Only 145 stations will go off-the-air, 30 stations plan to move to the VHF band. About 1000 stations, that did not sell any spectrum, will be forced to change UHF channels within the next 39 months.
