Here we are, a little more than a month away from the
February 17 June 12
analog shutoff date, and sure enough, more people have grabbed hold of a digital tuner in one device or another. According to Nielsen, the number of unprepared homes is now at 3.1-percent (3.5-million homes). To put that in perspective, recall that at the start of February, we were sitting at 5.1-percent
. We're pretty impressed that the number has moved below the 5-percent mark, and certainly a lot of credit goes to stations
that went ahead
with the switch ahead of the June 12 deadline. Zeno and his paradox aside, we've got high hopes that the June 12th date is going to stick, folks!
