Analog TV broadcasts end today
NEW YORK – The dawn of digital television is getting a big reception today. But the big question is whether some TV owners will be getting any reception at all.
Television stations across the U.S. will be shutting off their analog signals and begin broadcasting exclusively in digital, if they haven’t done so already.
More than 1 million unprepared homes will end up without any TV service. That’s because their older model TV sets get their signals off the air with antennas but don’t have a digital converter box to translate the new signals.
Cable and satellite subscribers won’t be affected.
Several Colorado stations previously switched to digital, including KMGH (ABC), KTVD (MyTV) and KUSA (NBC), Denver; and KFQX (Fox), KKCO (NBC) and KREX (CBS), Grand Junction.
