ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. National Cable & Telecommunications Association has supported the cable television networks' offer to distribute local TV stations in both analog and digital formats for three years. This will follow the official cutoff of analog TV in early 2009. The association has supported the idea as an alternative to Federal Communication Commission chairman Kevin Martin's proposal in this regard.
