Switch To Digital TV Pushed Back To June 12

The US House of Representatives voted to approve postponing the switch from analog to digital television from Feb. 17 to June 12.

The switch will move television broadcasts to a technically superior format, but would make older televisions sets without digital tuners obsolete.

A converter box is required to use an old television set with digital broadcasting.

Those who get their television service via cable systems or mini-disc satellite systems are not impacted by the switchover.

Bob Latta, U.S. representative for Fulton County (R-Bowling Green), voted against the delay.

"Once again, delaying the Digital Television Transition only adds confusion and additional costs to this important conversion," he said.
