DTV D-Day #2

dtv-transition-government-site

In the ongoing saga of the broadcast digital TV transition, the Associated Press is reporting (via EngadgetHD) that 158 more television stations are going all-digital before the final (?) June 12th deadline. Most of the stations are not big-4 network affiliates, and most are in small markets. PBS stations also make up a large portion of the early switchers to all-digital, an attempt on their part to save cash by dropping analog signals.

According to the FCC, nearly half of the country’s TV stations have now made the DTV transition. However, the fact that many large markets still get analog signals means we could still see consumer outcry come June. In good news, DTV awareness is up and the NTIA’s coupon program appears to be back on the right track.
