Reading FCC 05-24 seems to indicate that SV only applies to stations that are available OTA. 17. The Commission adopted the significantly viewed standard in 1972. The rules that set the standard also established the definition of “full network,” “partial network,” and “independent” station. The standard applies only to over the air viewing and only to commercial stations. Perhaps that I am reading this out of context, but, if this is so, how are cable companies able to provide OOM stations that are not available OTA in a community? Was there grandfathering for stations on a cable system prior to 1972? Example: Our local cable co. carries 2 Dallas affiliates (FOX and NBC). Dallas is 120 miles away and, under normal circumstances, these stations are never grade B anywhere in our county. Neither station is listed in the SV list for our county in FCC 05-24. Also, a nearby county has the Dallas CBS affiliate in the list, but they are about 150 miles away and there is no way the station is available OTA in this county without extraordinary measures.
