40% of stations shutting down analog broadcasts anyways
The House may have finally gotten the vote through to delay the digital transition from February 17th to June 12th to give more time for money to be scraped together for more converter box coupons... but television stations were never obliged to fund four more months of analog signals. And wouldn't you know: 40% of them won't, shutting those signals down next Tuesday.
I've been flip in the past about my feelings about exactly why the digital transition delay is a bad idea, but it really does come down to this: 40% of analog signals shutting down on February 17th is a hell of a lot more confusing to people than 100% shutting down. Expect a lot
or befuddled grannies shrieking in the aisles of Best Buy over the coming weeks.
Many local TV stations to go ahead with DTV switch
