A recent survey shows 6 out of 10 Americans have no idea about the digital transition between analog to digital TV that is coming in 2009
The survey, taken February of this year, reveals that a astounding 41 percent of the US population remain clueless about the transition from analog TV's to digital TV's.

Thats right folks, as of February 19th of 2009, your analog TV sets will work no more (without a digital converter box anyway). Time to leave the caveman era behind.

A very common misconception about this transition is that the "digital" signal you will be getting will be in high definition. Perhaps the government should make consumers better aware of the real intention of this transition.
