On Feb. 17, 2009, all over-the-air broadcasters will switch from an analog to a digital format. Doing so will improve the quality and choice of television available in our homes, but it will require some adjustment. As your congressman, I hope to provide you with resources that will ease this transition.
Currently, U.S. broadcast stations employ both analog and digital formats. However, in 2006, Congress passed legislation that would require all television stations to stop broadcasting on analog airwaves and begin broadcasting only in digital.
