From the FCC, August 18th:
FCC Chairman Kevin Martin today announced a nationwide initiative to increase awareness about the upcoming transition to digital television. The FCC identified target television markets for specific DTV outreach, including all those markets in which more than 100,000 households or at least 15% of the households rely solely on over-the-air signals for television.
Chairman Martin announced that the five FCC Commissioners and other Commission staff will fan out to these and other markets to raise awareness and educate consumers in the days leading up to the digital television transition on February 17, 2009.
The American Library Association has been an active member in the DTV Coalition, and has partnered with Radio Shack to have the company’s 5,000+ stores offer knowledgeable team members to 16,000 public libraries to host educational sessions and tech demos for library patrons.
