UPDATE: The switch goes on

02.6.2009 by AndrĂ© Natta · → 4 Comments

Despite Congress recently passing a delay of the switch from analog to digital television until June 12, many television stations (including several here in town) are still planning to go forward with “the switch” on the original date of February 17.

Currently NBC 13, CBS 42 and APT 9 all plan to proceed with the signal switch. We’d appreciate it if folks could chime in on if they know whether or not the other local stations will follow suit.

UPDATE: Just got word via Twitter (thanks James Spann) that ABC 33/40 will continue to broadcast in both analog and digital until June 12.

Andre, the company that owns us has decided to keep our analog signal up and running until June 12. This is a change from what I was told Friday when I twittered about us going digital. Sorry for the confusion Chris CBS 42
