Broadcasters’ DTV Transition: Helpful Information

Last week at CableTechTalk, Paul Rodriguez published a helpful post on the differences between broadcasters’ transition to digital signals next year and the efforts, by some cable operators, to “transition analog channels onto digital cable tiers.”

Toward the end of the same post, Rodriguez summarized a series of commitments made by the cable operators that have seats on the NCTA Board of Directors, noting that these companies “own and operate cable systems serving ninety percent of the nation’s cable subscribers.”

Suddenlink is one of those cable operators. We and our industry peers made the commitments listed by Rodriguez in order to minimize confusion and help eliminate complicating issues surrounding the broadcasters’ digital transition on Feb. 17.
