Despite the recent approval of a congressional bill supporting a four-month delay of the transition to digital TV signals, some 40% - 681 of about 1800 - TV stations plan to make the switch after February 17 anyway. The major networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, said that would continue to broadcast in analog and digital. These three networks, however, only control about 100 of the total 1800 TV stations in question. The local stations that do decide to go all digital will free up some of the 700Mhz spectrum in those markets that companies such as Qualcomm have bought the rights to use.
