Testimony Re: Digital Television Transition

The digital transition, as envisioned by the 1996 Telecommunications Act, has failed, requiring additional congressional action. That legislation will determine whether the transition to digital television will ultimately benefit American consumers with more programming and telecommunications choices, or whether it will impose billions in direct costs on consumers and exacerbate concentration in telecommunications markets.
