When is the switch to digital TV signals?

Q: When do TV stations switch to digital signals?

A: Television stations across the United States will begin broadcasting through a digital rather than an analog signal on June 12. Congress had mandated that the switch go into effect back in February, but it was delayed to give people more time to get ready.

If you have cable or satellite television, there's nothing to worry about. But viewers who rely on rabbit ears or roof-top antennas and who do not have internal digital tuners in their current TV sets, will need converter boxes if they want to continue watching television.
