The article discusses issues related to the $1.5 billion program of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) of the U.S. Commerce Department which is designed to provide a smooth transition from analog to digital television. The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the Consumer Electronics Association have opposed the NTIA plans saying that the Congress did not give the NTIA authority to exclude any households in the program.
