On the last day of 2007, the FCC released its Third Periodic Review of the Digital Television rules and policies, providing the rules and procedures that TV stations must follow in their final transition from analog to digital operations. This transition leads up to the February 17 deadline when all television stations must cease analog broadcasting and operate full-time in digital. We first summarized that order here. Now that the order has been published in the Federal Register, and deadlines and filing dates have become fixed, our firm, Davis Wright Tremaine, has published a more complete summary of the DTV transition rules. The advisory containing that summary can be found here. Read it and prepare for the hectic year before the digital conversion is complete.
