Proposed Rulemaking would "encourage and permit" continued analog TV service after the February 17, 2009 DTV transition (by some stations, where feasible) to provide public safety and DTV transition information. 

According to the FCC, the proposed, continued analog service would serve like a “nightlight ” to unprepared viewers,assuring continued access to emergency information.  It would also guide them with information to help with a belated transition to digital service.  See the attached PDFs for more information.
