FCC Shares Guidelines for DTV Nightlight Act

Dec 29, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The FCC has already begun outlining guidelines for the recently passed SAFER Act, also known as the DTV nightlight bill, Broadcasting & Cable reports. The law, signed by President George W. Bush on Dec. 23, will look to keep at least one station in every market transmitting an analog signal past the Feb. 17 digital transition to carry information and emergency broadcasts, the trade says. The FCC surveyed the markets and found that as of now, only 136 out of 210 markets have at least one station where a nightlight analog signal can be transmitted without interference to other signals, B&C says.
