Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. WAXN-TV terminated analog operations on February 17, 2009. Therefore, Questions 2,3, and 4 refer to programming on the station's primary digital stream. The Children's Television Act and the FCC's rules require that programming targeting children ages twelve and under may not contain more than 10.5 minutes of total commercial matter per clock hour on weekends and no more than 12.0 minutes of total commercial matter per clock hour on weekdays. In addition, children's programming may not direct viewers to an Internet website unless the website offers a substantial amount of bona fide program-related or other non-commercial content; the website is not designed "primarily" for commercial purposes (that is, e-commerce or advertising); the website's home page and other menu pages clearly distinguish between the website's commercial and noncommercial sections; and, the website page to which viewers are directed is not used for e-commerce, advertising, or other commercial purposes that is, the page has no links labeled "store" or direct links to other pages with commercial material.) Finally, neither children's programming nor commercials aired during children's programming may display Internet website addresses that direct viewers to Internet websites that utilize a program's characters to advertise, promote, or sell products or services. After due review of internal station records and documentation provided to us by program suppliers, the licensee hereby certifies as follows: (i) the only programs specifically designed for children ages twelve and under that the station broadcast this quarter are disclosed in this report and (ii) the licensee fully complied with the FCC's commercial limis with respect to these programs.
