DTV DTV Soft Test Update: 55,000 Callers Ring FCC Help Line


55,000 phone callers flooded the FCC help line after a nationwide soft test yesterday. The test was conducted in 125 broadcast markets.

A soft test is a simulation of what unprepared viewers will see when the Digital Transition occurs. During the test consumers TVs will be interrupted, (only those receiving analog signals) to warn them that they are not prepared for the transition on June 12, 2009.

Is this a foreshadow of what’s to come on June 12, 2009?
