Digital Delay

Frankly I think Congress and President Obama are making matters worse by delaying the required transition date from February 17th to June 12th.  I realize that some people were not ready for the transition yet, but I tend to think that is their fault.  I mean, its not like this transition was being kept a secret!  And now, people are going to think they are fine remaining analog until June 12th, but that is not really necessarily the case.  TV stations have  UNTIL June 12th to make the transition, but they can do it at anytime.  And a number of stations are going to go ahead and do it February 17th (for example, almost all the stations in West Virginia are making the leap on 2/17).  So a lot of people still need to get prepared in the next 10 days or they’ll be watching a snowy screen, and they’ll be shocked when they wake up one morning thinking they had until 6/12.
