Senate, House Pass DTV Delay Bill

By Luke Anderson

Well it seems that this whole DTV transition delay is finally happening. I’ve hoped that our government would see the light, but that is not the case. The latest bill has passed at the House and is on its way to President Obama’s desk. Since he’s been pushing for the bill all along, we can assume that he will sign it without hesitation.

One interesting tidbit that made it into the bill is that stations that are ready for the switch may go ahead and do so. That’s just great, first you confuse people by telling them that their old TVs will keep working until June 12, then you let stations pull the plug. I can’t see where that would cause any issues at all. I’m pretty sure the only thing they could do to make this worse is attempt to delay it once again in June.
