Digital TV Moving Forward, For Some

The Associated Press is reporting that more than one-fourth of U.S. television stations are switching to digital from analog broadcasting as originally scheduled.

Maybe these stations will have mobile TV offerings before their non-switching contemporaries, since the same technology used for digital broadcasts is going to be used for mobile television. That’s why MMW has been keeping a close eye on the issue. To learn more, read here and here and here and here.

Lucky (or unlucky) cities set to lose most or all analog broadcasts on February 17 include: San Diego and Bakersfield, Calif.; Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla.; Charleston and Greenville, S.C.; Dayton, Ohio; Springfield, Ill.; Burlington, Vt.; Binghamton, N.Y.; Casper, Wyo.; Lincoln, Neb.; Lubbock, Texas; Mobile, Ala.; and Sioux Falls, S.D.

Stations in other regions will be making the switch on June 12.
