In a vote held today, the U.S. House of Representatives failed to pass the proposed bill that would delay the transition to digital TV signals by four months. The bill needed two thirds of the House to pass. It is not immediately clear what the bill's future is, though the Senate passed the bill earlier this week, and it has the support of President Obama.

I agree we need to stop this. People have known since 2007 that this was coming and had more than enough time to prepare. There's a good lesson about not waiting until the last minute in this somwewhere.
the original date of DTV was July 2006 and the stations did not take it serious. So now they have had 3 years and people still aren't ready. people do not change unless forced to.

if you dont like it you can get out!
ppl have known for alot longer than that

i have been hearing this **** for going on 5 years now

i remember back in 2004 there was supposed to be the switch over then it just died out again till now
When I brought my dog to obedience training, the instructor stated that you only tell a dog to do something once. Otherwise, the dog doesn't understand that you mean it.

Some people are like dogs.

If they postpone it again, people will still no...
The people who are affected by this are the people who don't pay for TV anyway. They shouldn't have any say in what happens to TV anyway.

stupidity at its finest

they teach you, all your life to do things on time, homework, projects, work schedules, and punish you if you don't. Yet when it comes to our own government, the same government who enforces, aand created this system. it seems they are hipocrites. YOU PEOPLE had a a YEAR OR MORE to prep for this, if you did not get your coupon, or your converter box then your an idiot, and deserve to watch snow and listen to static. and don't get me started on how asinign it is to not have at least basic cable. i'm glad they nixed the bill.
