The Digital TV Conversion, by Dorie Christakis

The government mandated transition from analog to digital TV will officially happen on June 12. While every broadcasting company must make the switch, every household must either buy a converter box or a new set to watch programming. The switch is coming at a time when fewer viewers are watching TV. Instead, they’re watching the internet. Dorie Christakis reports the effects of the transition on both television companies and viewers.
