  Sec.  15.124   DTV Transition Notices by Manufacturers of Televisions and Related

   (a) Television receivers and related devices manufactured between May 30,
   2008, and March 31, 2009, must include notices about the digital television
   (DTV)  transition.  Related  devices  covered by this requirement: All
   television broadcast receivers as defined in  Sec. 15.3(w); TV interface devices
   as defined in  Sec. 15.3(y); devices that record and/or display signals received
   from television broadcast receivers; and set-top boxes available for sale at
   retail  that receive video programming provided by multi-channel video
   programming distributors.

   (b) The notices required under paragraph (a) of this section must:

   (1) Be in clear and conspicuous print;

   (2) Convey at least the following information about the DTV transition:

   (i) After February 17, 2009, a television receiver with only an analog
   broadcast  tuner  will  require  a converter box to receive full power
   over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the Nation's transition
   to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before
   to receive low power, Class A or translator television stations and with
   cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and
   similar products.

   (ii)   Information   about   the  DTV  transition  is  available  from or 1–888–CALL–FCC, and from or
   1–888–DTV–2009   for   information   about   subsidized   coupons  for
   digital-to-analog converter boxes; and

   (3) Explain clearly what effect, if any, the DTV transition will have on the
   use  of  the  receiver or related device, including any limitations or
   requirements associated with connecting a related device to a DTV receiver.

   (c) This notice requirement applies to all responsible parties, as defined
   in  Sec. 2.909 of this chapter.
