In this Order, the FCC takes the next actions necessary to implement the DTV Delay Act, which was enacted into law on February 11, 2009.

Congress extended the DTV transition deadline from February 17, 2009, to June 12, 2009 to provide consumers additional time to prepare for the transition from analog to digital broadcasting. The Act directed the FCC to implement the provisions, and carry out the purposes of the Act within 30 days.

These issues are addressed in the attached Order.
