Analog to Digital Switch Delayed

End of broadcasting in analog

End of broadcasting in analog

So, for all of you wondering, it’s official – Congress has passed legislation that delays the deadline for television stations to stop broadcasting in analog.

The deadline was supposed to be today, February 17, 2009 for all stations to end broadcasting in analog, but it is now pushed back to June 12, 2009. It appears there were millions of people still not equipped for the change (I’m not sure how, I couldn’t live without my Cable Package!). Some full-power stations may actually stop broadcasting in analog this month, but many have decided to postpone “flipping the switch.”

If you are looking for additional information regarding the switch to digital and the exact dates it will take place, detailed information can be found on the FCC’s Digital TV Transition site.
