Decisionmark's www.CheckHD.com teaches consumers about HDTV.
Decisionmark has unveiled a cross-industry supported digital television (DTV) education site. The new online resource, www.CheckHD.com, is now available for consumer and business customers. While the digital broadcast signals reach just more than 100 million American households, prospective buyers are often unclear about the benefits and availability of digital and HDTV.
This comes after a separate announcement by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell regarding a major FCC consumer education campaign.
The FCC has introduced www.dtv.gov, a Web site designed to help consumers learn more about the content and availability of digital programming.
The site includes a comprehensive guide for DTV and HDTV channels, programming broadcast to a prospective buyer’s exact location, along with an interactive, printable Buyer’s Guide that includes customized information on the channels received, products of interest, local retail locations and antenna recommendations.
Completing the site is a guide to HDTV provided by the Consumer Electronics Association. The section also includes high-definition and digital TV Frequently Asked Questions, along with terms and definitions.
