That I don't know.  I do know of an LPTV in Maine that is public access but
I don't know the relevant regulations.  THAT LPTV, so far as I remember, is
owned by a cable company.

An even more interesting question has been posed in the public-access
business:  Can public-access studios own/operate LPFM?  The regulations
seem to prohibit "media companies" from owning such stations, but the
spirit of the law seems to favor just the sort of community-based
corporations such as public-access corporations are.  Speaking for myself
alone, it would be nice if the FCC could clarify this.

Take care,
