The Federal Communications Commission held an open meeting on the status and issues involved with the transition to digital television scheduled for February 17, 2009. Presentations were made by agency officials and representatives of industry and consumer groups. The first panel focused on consumer outreach, the second on call centers, and the third on reception issues and the “Analog Nightlight” program that would allow some full-power television stations to continue streaming a bare-bones analog signal for 30 days after the DTV transition to provide public safety information. close
