DTV Transition Coalition Statement on NTIA Rules Supporting DTV Transition

The DTV Transition Coalition issued the following statement in response to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) final rules announced today:

“The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) final rules released today move the nation closer to the all-important transition to digital television. These new rules establish the parameters for a program that will allow consumers to request government-funded coupons for use in obtaining discounted access to digital-to-analog converter boxes. NTIA is helping to ensure that no American is left without access to over-the-air broadcast television when the nation transitions to digital television on February 17, 2009. The DTV Transition Coalition recognizes the importance of a carefully crafted converter box program and will continue to work, consistent with its consumer education mission, with all stakeholders to promote a successful digital television transition.”
