FCC to hold workshop to find ways to promote public education on DTV transition

The meeting will bring together many of those representing various segments of the U.S. population to look for answers to educating the public on the transition.

The FCC will hold a daylong Digital Television Consumer Education Workshop at its Washington, DC, headquarters Sept. 26.

The workshop will give interested parties a chance to examine the upcoming DTV transition and discuss coordinated consumer education activities. Participants will include those representing senior citizens, low-income consumers, non-English speakers, people with disabilities, tribes, and public interest organizations.

A live audio cast of the event will be available from the commission’s Web site.
