Battery-powered DTV converters are coming
For all those with portable TV sets, the Consumer Electronics Association says battery-powered DTV converters boxes are coming soon. In the “long term” they will be widely available in “several variations and at different price points,” said CEA president Gary Shapiro to FCC chairman Kevin Martin.
Responding to an inquiry from Martin, Shapiro said he had alerted his members about the importance of stocking battery-powered DTV boxes. He said many retailers have been stocking battery-powered DTV receivers for the past year.
