Senate Agrees to DTV Delay

Article Comments  54  

Jan 23, 2009, 3:53 PM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

The U.S. Senate has provisionally approved of a proposal to delay the transition to DTV by four months. The Senate has yet to officially vote on the matter, which is also being debated by the House of Representatives. The proposal in question will push the transition back to June 12. The Senate is also seeking money for converter box coupons that some consumers may need for the transition. Approximately $650 million has been set aside by the House for those coupons. Under the proposal, some television stations have the choice to halt analog broadcasts if they so choose. Verizon Communications has spoken in favor of a delay, while Qualcomm, which hopes to expand its MediaFLO mobile TV network, has voiced opposition.
