Assistance Centers Helped People Make the Digital Television Transition This Weekend
June 15, 2009 - Posted by The Leadership Conference
The digital television transition took place across the U.S. last Friday. The transition brought many TV viewers clearer pictures and more channels—but it also left millions of unprepared Americans with no TV reception at all.
For the past several months, LCCREF has partnered with local organizations in seven cities to provide DTV assistance to communities most in need of assistance making the transition. Over the weekend, the staff and volunteers at the assistance centers were hard at work to ensure that their communities stay connected with converter boxes and antennas. They fielded phone calls from consumers who needed help installing their converter boxes, went on visits to homes to help people install their converter boxes, hosted informational events to help community members get DTV-ready, and invited media to come see the work in action.
Here are some photos of their great work:
