ABSTRACT
The article focuses of the move towards digital television transition in the U.S. The government imposed the move effective February 17, 2009 that requires all television stations to send broadcasts out in digital format. However, this will cause problems for those with analog television sets as it cannot process digital signals which is why the National Association of Broadcasters is soliciting the aid of the media to inform the public to prepare them for the change.
