Top LPTV Transactions and Sales

Low power television stations have come a long way from being mere signal repeaters for full power television stations. Today, low power television stations are affiliated with the big four, ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX as well as smaller networks. In fact, LPTV stations are a vital resource for those smaller networks like My Network TV, CW, Univision, Telefutura, Telemundo and Azteca America. And if it wasn't for LPTV many markets wouldn't have an affiliate from one of these networks.

Below you can find a partial list of the largest LPTV sales on record. (more records will added soon)
