Powell Offers Voluntary DTV Plan
Posted 05 April 2002 - 06:25 AM
The plan, contained in a letter to Sen. Fritz Hollings (D-S.C.), included several proposals affecting the cable industry. However, Powell said his plan was 'voluntary' and would not prejudge the outcome of pending digital-TV rulemakings.
The plan is likely to please television-station owners, which have urged the FCC to put pressure on the cable industry and equipment makers to assist in the digital transition.
In a prepared statement, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association neither endorsed nor opposed Powell's plan.

No, I'm not bitter by this... but this plan may help the rest of the country out who has already entered the 21 century.
