television (DTV) transition. Related devices covered by this 
requirement: All television broadcast receivers as defined in Sec. 
15.3(w); TV interface devices as defined in Sec. 15.3(y); devices that 
record and/or display signals received from television broadcast 
receivers; and set-top boxes available for sale at retail that receive 
video programming provided by multi-channel video programming 
distributors.

transition:
    (i) After February 17, 2009, a television receiver with only an 
analog broadcast tuner will require a converter box to receive full 
power over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the Nation's 
transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to 
work as before to receive low power, Class A or translator television 
stations and with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, 
VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.

www.DTV.gov or 1-888-CALL-FCC, and from http://www.dtv2009.gov or 1-888-
