February 19, 2008

More than 13 million households with television sets that can only receive analogue broadcasts are currently unprepared for the transition to all digital broadcasting that is scheduled for February 18, 2009, according to the Nielsen Company. Another 6 million households have at least one television set that would no longer work after that date. Neilsen also reported that 10.1 per cent of all households would have no access to television signals if the transition occurred today.
