Shocker: Many Still Not Ready For Digital Conversion

As a side note, even the government doesn’t seem to understand what’s going on. TV stations are already broadcasting in digital — all that’s happening is that the analog signals are being turned off, and yet they keep calling it “switching to digital.” Many stations have already turned off their analog signal.

Ask your average politician about any of these details and you’ll most likely get a blank stare — all they know is that they got a chance to blow some money.
