Best Buy, Circuit City Contest FCC Fines

14 May, 2008 By: Erik Gruenwedel

Best Buy Co. Inc. and Circuit City Stores Inc. May 13 issued oppositions to the Federal Communications Commission regarding nearly $1 million in combined fines levied on the retailers for allegedly failing to remove from shelves television sets that will become obsolete following the transition to digital broadcasts next February.

The FCC last month imposed fines of about $6 million against several retailers and TV manufacturers for allegedly not properly marking dated TV sets and informing consumers about the pending digital transition.
