johnraphone Done in the USA and failed. (211 comments)

Several companies in 2000 tried to buy small tv stations called lptv's. They opperate on low power; VHF 3kw and UHF 150kw max ERP. They are licensed like other broadcasting stations in the US by the FCC.

Several US companies tried it. ISP's were on board at first but abondoned the plan arround 2001-2002'ish probably decided it was a better idea to build wired networks instead. To build one of these VHF/UHF stations it cost arround $300,000.
