Update:
The senate has struck down the bill to extend the time after pressure from media sites.The time frame is back on with 19 days left to the switch over.I do not agree with the vote since it will leave millions without tv service.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 2009 (Reuters) — The Senate passed a bill on Monday to delay the nationwide switch to digital TV signals, giving consumers nearly four more months to prepare.The transition date would move to June 12 from February 17 under the bill that was fueled by worries that viewers are not technically ready for the congressionally-mandated switch-over.

    Why delay the inevitable?

    We've been seeing the local commercials about this switch over for months now.

    There are over 2.5 million people that are on a waiting list for the discount coupons as of right now. Most consist of the elderly,and poor.I agree with the delay in the switch over these people do not need to be left with no tv signal.

    This was announced several years ago so I don't understand the mad rush at the end. Hawaii and Wilmington (NC) have already made the switch. This appears to be procrastination on behalf of a lot of consumers. Nevertheless a delay might be the only real solution at this point.

    Personally I think that there is something funny going on with this switch to digital broadcasting..

    I would agree there could be something fishy since the government is trying to make sure everyone receives the switch over.It could be they want to make sure that everyone still watches their government controlled media instead of searching for the truth elsewhere.
