A national telephone survey was conducted with 486 adults to profile early knowers of digital television (DTV) based on demographics, media use, the perceived complexity and relative advantage of new technologies, and ownership of communication technologies. Age, educational level, television viewing, and ownership of communication technologies were all significant predictors of DTV awareness, but contrary to expectations, no other media use variable and no perceptual variable determined the respondents' level of DTV awareness in the regression analysis.
