SOWEGA helps seniors with big switch

By Delivrine Registre - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The SOWEGA Council of Aging did its part Friday to make sure seniors can still watch their favorite television shows after the digital transition.

A gateway call center has been set up under the Keeping Seniors Connected program.

Anyone over the age of 65 with questions about their boxes, antennas or even about getting a coupon for a digital converter box can call to help make their digital transition smooth.

Engineers are even on call to go to callers' homes if their question warrants a visit.

"We are pretty sure that after today we are going to get an influx of callls because people aren't going to know how to do the switch, aren't going to know how to scan for the new stations, or know that they will have to move their antenna one way or another," said DTV Transition Manager, Chris Russell.

The call center will be up and running through July 31st. Anyone with questions can call 432-0994.
