158 More TV Stations Cut Off Analog Signals Early  Print E-mail

There will be 158 more TV stations using only digital broadcasting soon, according to the FCC.  They will join the 641 stations that have already shut off their analog broadcasts.  Altogether, about half of the TV stations in the nation will have made the switch once these 158 turn off their analog signals.


They take a 15% chunk out of the stations still using analog signals, but most of the 158 do not broadcast to major markets.  These stations have made the switch to digital broadcasting well ahead of the new July 12th deadline.  This deadline was originally February 17th, but congress pushed it back in order to allow those Americans who were unprepared some more time to get a converter box that could handle the digital signals.
