The digital transition is taking effect June 12th now and FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell visited the Valley on Tuesday as part of a nationwide DTV outreach.
Commissioner McDowell made an appearance at the University of Texas Pan American campus in Edinburg to raise awareness of the upcoming digital transition. Commissioner McDowell says there is a large challenge here in the Valley to overcome and says the biggest misconception right now is that consumer's think they need the coupon to get a converter box. That is not true and you can buy a converter box at any electronics store without a coupon.
To help the transition UTPA set up a call center to answer questions anyone may have about this transition and you can for answers at 1.
