Congratulations to the new FCC team for improving the FCC's half of the feuding government DTV websites. The new design is much better and even has a video on converter connection on the top page. There is also a new nifty consumer oriented coverage map page that tells you what signals you might expect and how strong they should be.
There is a new news release on the status of the transition that does not read that it was intended for FCBA members or to blunt congressional questioning - but to actually help consumers. One minor criticism, realizing how hard it is to make the FCC consumer friendly quickly, the attachment to the new release still uses FCC jargon that consumers are unlikely to be familiar with and doesn't give even a glossary: DMA, Nite Lite, Nite Lite Plus, HardshipWVR.
