Miami Herald: Broadcast Television’s Switch to Digital is Finally Here


TV’s switch to digital is finally here, The Miami Herald, June 10, 2009. by Glenn Garvin. Excerpt: “The changeover to digital from the analog system used since the invention of TV in the 1920s has been anything but abrupt. The government began studying the change in 1987, OK’d it 10 years later and ordered TV manufacturers to make every new set digital-capable in 2004. The timetable for the change has been shifted several times, most recently when the newly arrived Obama administration asked Congress to postpone it from February to June.
