FCC targets some TV stations shutting analog

The government has asked TV stations across the county, including four in the Mobile-Pensacola, Fla. market, to justify why they're not extending their conventional, analog broadcasts for four months.

The Federal Communications Commission says the Mobile stations are among a number of cities where all of the major-network stations have applied to turn off their signals next week as part of the transition to digital television.

Those stations are sticking with the old Feb. 17 deadline for shutting down analog broadcasts. Congress recently gave the industry the option of waiting until June 12.

The FCC wants to make sure that in markets where the old cutoff is adhered to, consumers will be given ample information about the transition.
