The DTV Delay Bill was passed by the Senate today postponing the end of analog transmission from February 17th to June 12th

Barack and supporters were worried that 20 million mostly poor, elderly and rural households were not prepared for the transition due to a shortage of government coupons meant to offset the cost of converter boxes.

The bill delaying the changeover to June 12 from February 17 cleared the U.S. House of Representatives in a 264-158 vote and followed Senate passage last month.
