analog televisionIt seems the stories of analog TV’s death have been greatly exaggerated.

While we’ve all seen the endless number of ads on television about how analog TV signals were going away on February 17th, it seems that isn’t the case any more.  Due to the actions of the Senate of the United States, it seems the stay of execucution for the old style over the air television signal will be extended until June 12th, 2009.  This new date has also been supported by President Obama, and many others in the government.

The reason for the delay is that there have been many problems with the $40 vouchers to get the necessary converter boxes.  Extending the deadline will keep millions of people from losing their television signal come the day of the transition.  Although, we here at StarterTech are a little befuddled that there are still that many people receiving their television signals this way.

As always, please remember that if you receive your TV via a cable company or home dish system, you do not need a converter box, and this change over will have absolutely no effect on you.
