Senate Approves Emergency Analog Outlets After DTV Deadline

Nov 20, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The U.S. Senate today approved legislation that would cushion the digital TV switchover by allowing stations to air analog emergency messages and billboards informing of the switch for 30 days after the Feb. 17 switchover.
The legislation, which still awaits a House vote, passed unanimously on a voice vote.
Under the legislation, TV stations still would be required to switch their primary channel feeds to digital on Feb. 17. For 30 days thereafter, they could offer analog emergency information or DTV education information.
In an emergency, weather or other public-service messages could air.
