Channel 70 has been removed from television use in 1983, but was formerly used by television stations in North America which broadcast on 806-812 MHz. In the United States, channels 70-83 served primarily as a "translator band" containing repeater transmitters to fill gaps in coverage for existing stations. Many are now defunct, the rest were to have been moved to lower frequencies:
- KTTC (NBC Rochester, Minnesota) licenses to operate repeaters K70DR Blue Earth and K79BK Fairmont, Minnesota (channels 70 and 79 respectively) were renewed by the US Federal Communications Commission in 1999.
- NTIA had listed K70DR and K70FL (both on analog channel 70) among the LPTV operations to be unaffected by the 2009 US ATSC digital television transition, based on license information current as of 2008. These two channel 70 repeaters were the last to remain licensed anywhere in the channel 70-83 range; both have now moved.
