Article Comments  20  

Jan 30, 2009, 8:22 AM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

The Senate has passed a slightly modified version of the digital TV delay bill that it passed earlier this week. According to Texas Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison, the delay is now voluntary and TV stations can choose to switch to digital transmissions on February 17, as scheduled, and cease analog transmissions. The changes could help companies such as Qualcomm, which have invested heavily in preparation for the February 17 date. The bill will now go back to the House of Representatives.
