Digital Television Transition

In the latest American Libraries, I read an article about the Digital Television Transition (DTT). I hadn't heard about this before, but I at least should have foreseen it. Basically, those good ol' fashioned analog channels that some of us grew up with are going digital for good. A snippet:

TV stations serving all markets in the United States are airing digital television programming today, although most will continue to provide analog programming through February 17, 2009. At that point, full-power TV stations will cease broadcasting on their current analog channels, and the spectrum they use for analog broadcasting will be reclaimed and put to other uses.
