DTV Nightlight Bills Gets House Approval

Dec 11, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The U.S. House approved the SAFER Act, the DTV “nightlight” bill, Wednesday night, and sent it to President Bush, who is expected to sign it, TVNewsday reports. The bill will allow broadcasters to keep analog signals on after the mandated analog shutoff date of Feb. 17 with important information for viewers, such as DTV information and emergency alerts, the site says. The FCC will be encouraged to pursue a program that will help broadcasters implement the post-DTV analog transmissions where feasible, TVNewsday adds.
