The US House of Representatives voted today not to delay the transition from analog to digital television since the Yeas did not achieve the 2/3rds majority needed.
As one of the few people I know who gets their television over the air, I can’t wait for the switch. Not only will it allow television stations to boost their digital signal, it will free up gobs of bandwidth for other uses.
It’s been over three years since the transition was put in motion, and if people aren’t ready now they won’t ever be ready. However, the Senate is trying to delay the switch by four months, and I can’t help but think this is motivated by more than just concern for the people. I am very happy the House saw fit to correct this and hope its action stands.
