West Michigan: Newsmakers Nov 17, 2008




Muskegon Chronicle:

In a few months, television stations nationwide will begin broadcasting in digital, bringing an increased sound and picture quality previously unavailable to those without cable or satellite TV. The change, which doesn't affect cable and satellite TV users, requires the estimated 600,000 Michigan households that rely exclusively on antennas to watch TV buy a converter box to receive the digital signals by Feb. 17. That's when stations stop broadcasting in analog and begin broadcasting fully in digital. Yet, a recent poll by state government officials found that 44 percent of Michigan residents aren't ready for the change. Many haven't purchased a converter box, which are sold at many electronics stores... Are you ready for television's digital age? (Sun, 11/16)
