Tomorrow (Tuesday, December 9) is “DTV Day” in Boston, and more than a dozen local broadcasters and data service providers are working together in a three-pronged community awareness program to test the Boston TV market’s digital transition readiness, with:
* Intermittent daylong crawls on all outlets promoting DTV information on a single station (WGBH-TV analog)
* Daylong, uninterrupted DTV information on a single, destination station (WGBH-TV analog)
* Three, 2-minute ‘Virtual Shutdown’ readiness tests on all outlets at 5:15 a.m., 6:15 a.m., 5:15 p.m.
