The FCC identified target television markets for specific DTV outreach, including all those
markets in which more than 100,000 households or at least 15% of the households rely solely on
over-the-air signals for television reception. The five FCC Commissioners and senior
Commission staff will visit these and other markets to raise awareness and educate consumers in
the days leading up to the DTV transition on February 17, 2009.
