According to the www.iwantmyhdtv.com website, the company that made these digital transition maps used the information provided by the broadcasters to the FCC and the agency's methodology to determine whether a consumer can recieve an adequate over the air signal. Consumers and satellite TV providers have complained for many years that the methodology predicts households to be served that cannot receive an adequate over the air signal, but we're stuck with this government standard. Thus the digital white area shown in the maps is also understated, and it's guaranteed that more than 39 million households nationwide cannot receive one or more digital network signals over the air.
