IN 2005, Congress wrote and approved legislation concerning the
conversion to all-digital television broadcasting, also known as
the digital television (DTV) transition. DTV is more
efficient than analog television, delivers better picture and sound
to consumers, and will free the airwaves for other services.
Congress passed a law on February 1, 2006, which set the deadline
for the DTV transition as February 17, 2009.
For a year prior to the transition date the Federal Communications Commission has established rules for a coordinated DTV consumer education campaign including quarterly reports of those efforts. Television broadcaster licensees are required to complete and file a quarterly report (DTV Consumer Education Quarterly Activity Report Form 388) to the Commission and make the reports available to the public.
FCC Form 388 is available for inspection by the public at WANE-TV, 2915 West State Blvd., Fort Wayne, IN 46808 during regular weekday business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30a.m. - 5p.m.). You may also view the form online via our link.
