TV mom helping real moms go digital

leave a comment »

Those of us who find ourselves doing tech support for friends and family are getting a little help from TV mom Florence Henderson and hit-making country band Whiskey Falls. (Interesting useless trivia: guitarist Damon Johnson started his professional career with Alice Cooper.)

The unusual combination is the work of the Consumer Electronics Association, which is working to smooth the transition to digital TV. It offers a free downloadable pdf, Flo’s Digital Tips, featuring Henderson showing consumers how to go digital, complete with easily understood images.

Whiskey Falls is the centerpiece of a competition based on the CEA’s own You Tube channel. The band sings a little and talks about converting to digital. The contest invites the public to post a short video response to the channel. Rules and prizes are here.
