Old TVs

Could 2009 be the year your old TV won’t work?
— Posted by the Associated Press at ABC13.com

Congress is zeroing in on early 2009 as the time for the country to make the switch to digital television broadcasts, a move that will give viewers sharper pictures and better sound.

A Senate bill would set a firm deadline of April 2009, according to a draft proposal obtained Friday by The Associated Press. The draft of a House bill would end analog transmissions on Dec. 31, 2008.

So you have three years to upgrade your television. Knowing me, I’ll be looking for a new TV on January 1, 2009.
