One Month Before Digital TV Transition, Assistance Centers Will Help Their Communities Navigate Transition

The Media Alliance, the Southeast Asian Community Center (SEACC), Self-Help for the Elderly, and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund (LCCREF) will open the Bay Area's DTV Assistance Centers.

Less than one month out from the scheduled February 17 Digital Television Transition, the Bay Area is one of seven cities nationwide that are opening Assistance Centers that will assist impacted communities with the transition and act as hubs for information and technical support before, during, and after the transition.

The centers in the Bay Area will be conducting DTV coupon drives, providing trainings on converter box installation, and other technical support to their communities in the Bay Area on the DTV Transition. The event will launch the assistance efforts of three outreach and Assistance Centers in the Bay Area:
