See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. Question 14 is being left blank as we are unable to fully determine E/I programming for next quarter. In addition, on or about October 25, 2016, Bounce TV (D5) notified us that due to a technical error, three programs aired on Bounce TV without the requisite E/I symbol: All In with Laila Ali, Culture Click and Everyday Health. The FCC was informed at that time. The error affected these shows from October 1, 2016 to October 15, 2016. In total, 12 hours of E/I programming did not include an E/I symbol. Bounce TV has informed this station it has established new processes to ensure the technical issue does not recur. Additionally, the affected programs were re-broadcasted with the E/I symbol during this quarter.
