TV's Switch to Digital

Communication Service for the Deaf is opening a video phone call center and launching a Web site today designed to help the deaf and hard of hearing with the digital television transition. The FCC has given the CSD a grant of more than one million dollars in the effort. If you don’t have cable or satellite service, you’ll have to buy a converter box for your TV to keep picking up the stations. But there has been little information in sign language about the switch and how to access closed captioning. More info.
