NAB Files Comments Supporting DTV 'Analog Nightlight' Program

WASHINGTON, DC -- The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the Association for Maximum Service Television (MSTV) filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission today regarding a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on the Short-term Analog Flash and Emergency Readiness Act. The SAFER Act, signed into law late last year, establishes a program allowing TV stations to voluntarily broadcast DTV transition and public safety information in analog format in the days following the transition to digital television.

The filing can be viewed here.
