The Federal Communications Commission issued this Public Notice to provide a list of full-power television broadcast stations that have terminated or will terminate their analog operations prior to February 17, 2009, and those that have notified the Commission that they intend to terminate analog operations on February 17, 2009, the previous deadline for the digital television (“DTV”) transition established by the Digital Television and Public Safety Act of 2005 (“DTV Act”)
On February 4, 2009, the United States Congress passed legislation, known as the “DTV Delay Act,” that would extend the date for the completion of the DTV transition from February 17, 2009, to June 12, 2009. Congress extended the transition date in order to permit analog service to continue until consumers have had additional time to prepare.Congress also directed the Commission to provide flexibility for stations wanting to transition prior to the new date. Following the passage of the DTV Delay Act, the Commission issued a Public Notice, FCC 09-06, released February 5, 2009, to announce procedures that stations must follow if they wish to terminate their analog service on February 17, 2009, notwithstanding extension of the nationwide DTV transition deadline to June 12.
