30 Days and Counting to DTV Transition

On June 12, all full-power television stations in the United States will cease analog transmission and broadcast only in digital. Consumers who use an antenna to get free, over-the-air programming could lose their television signals on June 12 if they haven't taken steps to make their televisions DTV-ready.

"The switch to DTV offers benefits to consumers and society but we must be vigilant to make sure all Americans are prepared for the transition," said Acting FCC Chairman

Michael Copps. "Television is a primary source for news, weather and public safety information for many Americans so the FCC is working overtime to reach those remaining viewers who still have not taken the necessary action to continue to receive television programming after June 12. Consumers should know that help is available through a wide range of sources -- including the phone, the Internet, walk-in centers and clinics, and in-home assistance."
