Digital TV Begins Today

By law, full-power television stations nationwide must begin broadcasting exclusively in a digital format by June 12, 2009. The U.S. Congress approved an extension of the deadline, which was originally set for February 17.  Digital television, known as DTV, is an innovative type of broadcasting technology that provides crystal-clear pictures and sound, and more programming choices than ever before. While the benefits of digital television are remarkable, millions of households risk losing television reception unless they take the easy steps to receive a digital signal. Please look for the information about how to join the digital TV age HERE.
