FCC AND LOCAL ST. LOUIS ORGANIZATIONS

PARTNER FOR FINAL DTV TRANSITION PUSH


The Urban League of Metro St. Louis, St. Louis Community College at Forest Park, and Southside Wellness Center to Provide Direct Assistance to Consumers


WASHINGTON, DC - With 30 days to go before the transition to digital television, The Urban League of Metro St. Louis, St. Louis Community College at Forest Park, and the Southside Wellness Center will be working with the Federal Communications Commission to reach St. Louis-area residents who have not yet prepared.


Beginning May 20, 2009, and continuing through June 30, 2009, all three organizations will serve as walk-in help centers where consumers will be able to apply for $40 converter box coupons, learn how to hook up and operate a converter box, obtain consumer fact sheets, and get answers to other questions about digital television. FCC staff will provide the local partners with training and assistance on the latest information about the digital transition, converter box coupon program, converter box installations, antenna connections and adjustments for the best digital TV reception possible.

On June 12, all full-power television stations will cease analog broadcasts and provide service only in digital. Consumers who do not subscribe to pay television services and have an analog television will need a digital-to-analog converter box in order to continue receiving free, over-the-air television. They may also need to adjust or replace their antennas. More information about the DTV transition and about events in your community can be found at www.dtv.gov, or by calling the FCC toll-free at 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322).
