FCC sponsors NASCAR

21 10 2008

The FCC is advertising that TV is going all-digital in 2009 (Feb 17 to be exact).  If you’re still using rabbit ears on the boob toob, then chances are you’re watching Matlock and not NASCAR. However, if you tune your antenna just right on Nov 9 and 16, then you’ll see David Gilliland’s car racing around with the Federal Communications Commission sponsorship that reads: “Is Your TV Ready for Digital?” along with other words like “transition” and DTV.gov on the body panels. The car was suited up in this FCC lingo this past weekend in Martinsville. Congress gave the FCC about $20 million to spend on notifying tv-watching americans about the switch to all-digital and about $1 mil was spent on the pages of AARP magazine.
