The FCC is planning in February to complete the switch from analog to digital TV signals.

The FCC is going to be going out on tour to regions which have more than 100,000 people who rely on broadcast TV alone.

They are expected to be the most at-risk of not knowing what to do when the switch happens on February 17th.

In the regions, at least 15% of the households rely on broadcast TV.

Each of these events will feature one of the five FCC commissioners to increase local public awareness.

The list of markets includes the Washington area, as well as other large cities in the U.S.
