News To Know: DTV Transition Likely To Be Delayed
By Dave Goldstein, January 28, 2009 10:04 AM
If the measure passes the House, the long-awaited digital transition could be pushed back from February 17, to June 12. The move is a reaction to the shortage of discounted digital converter boxes offered to people with analog televisions. It is hoped that this delay will enable the government to address the backlog of people requesting converter boxes, allowing for a smoother transition. Keep an eye on the date and make sure you're ready for the switch.
