DTV Delay?

If you were listening to WFPL at 5:45pm on March 21st – or if you’ve watched more than 10 minutes of television in the last 6 months – you know about the digital transition on February 17th.The program that supplies coupons for converter boxes ran out of money this month. In response Obama transition team co-chair John Podesta suggests Congress delay the transition to give people more time to learn about DTV and to get coupons.Several Louisville stations are broadcasting analog and digital signals simultaneously. There was even a test recently where the major broadcasters interrupted their analog signals.Have you prepared for the switchover? Remember,you won’t necessarily be watching HDTV.

Gabe Bullard is the director of news and editorial strategy.
