Digital TV Transition Update #2

As if this wasn’t confusing enough, there has been yet another change in the transition to all-digital television broadcasts.

Last week I wrote that most Utah stations were going to go ahead and make the switch in February as originally planned.  All but one have now changed their minds.

As it stands today (and who knows for how long), the only station in Utah that is going to turn off their analog transmitter on February 17th is KUCW, Channel 30 (CW Network).  All of the rest have decided to wait until June 12th.

Are we all thoroughly confused yet?  Write to the head of the executive branch to express your frustration; we all knew what was going on before he stepped in and made a mess of it.  Politicians sure know how to make a mess of technological issues.

I’ll continue to update with whatever changes take place tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day…
