See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. STATION WXTX CEASED ANALOG OPERATIONS AND CONVERTED TO DIGITAL-ONLY OPERATIONS. QUESTIONS 7(B) AND 7(C)ARE NO LONGER APPLICABLE. On October 10, the Escape Network experienced technical difficulties that resulted in the first hour of the block to be preempted and the remaining two hours to experience a start time delay of 9 minutes. One show from the first hour and one show from the second hour were made good as non-core programming on October 18. Since the entire 3 hour block on October 10 is being regarded as preemptions not made good, Escape Network will air an additional hour of E/I programming beginning January 9, 2016 for the duration of the 1st Quarter so that stations will be able to make up for the 4Q15 shortfall with the inclusion of the extra hour that will air the 1st Q of 2016.
