FCC Cranking Out Big Fines For Analog TV Sales


We were pretty sure that the FCC was behind Best Buy's decision to remove televisions with analog-only tuners from their shelves, but we were also anxious to hear the rest of the story. No surprise then to find out that the FCC has been cracking down on retailers selling analog sets by handing out a whopping fine of $8000 per model, per store. That brings a whole new meaning to thin profit margins! Stores with remaining analog sets in their inventory can still sell them, but only with accompanying info explaining their limitations in the near future. Apparently only 12 infractions so far; not surprising with such a hefty fine.
