February 17, 2009. That's the day that US televsion stations must stop broadcasting in Analog format.


Analog TV sets will receive no 'readable' signal - unless a converter box is attached.

Here's the first piece from the FCC's website.

There's good information here. (Link to site/page is below.)

I didn't realize it was so soon! Great find! Especially since I'm in the market for a new TV! :)

There's concern for many groups such as the elderly and non-native-English-speaking folks who may find that there's just 'snow' on Feb 18, 2008.

I hope the FCC has a public service campaign planned for the last 365 days of analog TV!! :)
