The WCAX nightlight was mostly the National Association of Broadcasters 
video demonstrating (in both English and Spanish) setting up a converter 
box. WCAX interspersed that with their own video showing that coverage 
map and pointing out that many of their analog viewers wouldn't be able 
to receive the digital signal. WCAX interrupted the video loop to run 
their news broadcasts and also "Across the Fence."
