While not directly related to station auction. Some stations are making changes in programing and networks. For instance:

In San Diego Market. XETV's American operations are winding down. The CW Network along with Telemundo are moving over the US based stations. To be broadcast on KFMB and KNSD.

Some station groups are adding more programing. Or simply moving there current diginets to another station in the market.
