Most DTV callers complain about reception

Print More

Callers to the FCC with DTV-related issues complained most about technical and reception problems, according to documents from the commission. Around a quarter of nearly 28,000 calls on Feb. 17, the original transition date, focused on those topics. Nearly as many calls that day, just over 21 percent, were about problems with converter boxes or coupons. While many stations chose to wait until the new date, June 12, to drop analog broadcasts, 421 stations transitioned this week.
