FCC Sets Station Rules for DTV Switch

Feb 5, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The FCC has outlined new rules pertaining to the DTV switch in light of the approved delay to June 12, TelevisionWeek reports. Those stations that wish to proceed with the analog shutoff on Feb. 17 must let the FCC know by Feb. 9, and are required to air at least 120 PSAs by Feb. 17 announcing the station’s plan to viewers, Broadcasting & Cable says, citing an FCC representative. The rules and stipulations are contingent on President Obama’s signature on the bill, B&C explains. Major station groups are saying they will run dual digital and analog signals until the June switch, TVWeek says.
