House Defeats Bill To Delay Analog TV Transition

House Republicans have defeated the bill to extend the DTV switch by a vote of 258-168 (less than two-thirds). In their view, a delay would confuse customers and financially burden television stations.

So, for now, end game is still happening on February 17th and not June 12th as the Obama administration had hoped. With the coupon program broke and an estimated 6.5 million US homes still running analog, it seems that no matter when this goes down, chaos is unavoidable. [Physorg and Getty Images Photo ]
