ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the U.S. House of Representatives to pass a bill that will end analog-television broadcasting in the country at the end of 2008. Other than setting the date for the transition of analog to digital television broadcasting, the bill would also provide $830 million for set-top subsidies. These subsidies will keep analog-television sets working in homes that do not subscribe to cable or satellite.
