FCC Dems Support DTV Switch Delay

Jan 17, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Democrats in the FCC have voiced their concerns about the DTV switch to Congress and are in support of an analog-shutoff delay, Broadcasting & Cable reports. Among the problems listed by Jonathan Adelstein and Michael Copps in a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the Senate Commerce Committee are a lack of coordination between government agencies and other public and private groups, inadequate DTV education, understaffed phone helplines to help consumers with problems, and insufficient attention to issues that may arise due to reception and closed captioning, B&C says.
