The FCC has established a help line for TV stations that have questions regarding the commission’s new online interface for television public inspection files.

That number is  (877) 480-3201  or option 2,  (717) 338-2888. The hotline is staffed Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern.

The commission has two links to the public inspection file, one for the public, and another for TV stations. There’s also a Frequently Asked Questions tab on the pages for more information.

Affiliates of the top four television networks in the top 50 Nielsen DMAs were to begin uploading new files for their public inspection file to the FCC-hosted interface beginning Aug. 2.
