Digital TV Switch Could Be Postponed

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - It may be a few months longer until America makes the full switch-over to digital television.

The Senate voted unanimously Monday to postpone the change from analog to digital television by four months.

The transition was originally scheduled for February 17 but the Senate pushed it back to June 12.

The reason was concerns that more than 6.5 million Americans could see their television go dark because they still use over-the-air broadcast signals.

The House will vote on the issue next Tuesday.
