Obama Signs Bill Delaying DTV Transition

President Obama officially delays DTV transition by about four months to June 12.


·

President Barack Obama has signed the DTV-delay bill prolonging the DTV transition by about four months from Feb. 17 to June 12.

Obama initially called for the delay of the transition, saying too many Americans were unprepared. Congress passed the bill last week to extend the date that will end analog broadcasts.

Here’s Obama’s statement:

“During these challenging economic times, the needs of American consumers are a top priority of my administration.

This law, which was crafted in a bipartisan way and passed overwhelmingly in the House and Senate, ensures that our citizens will have more time to prepare for the conversion.”

Despite having the extra time to prepare, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reports that 681 stations want to honor the original Feb. 17 deadline. The FCC released this list of 491 stations (pdf) that want to make the transition on Feb. 17. Another 190 stations have already switched or will do so on Feb. 17.
