The Digital Transition

June 12 marks Philippine Independence, but for the United States,
it marks the digital transition. A lot of people fully understand what's happening on the 12th (tomorrow US time). Basically, the channels that people can watch on rabbit ears or an off air antenna that is connected to an analog TV will no longer be available. People will either have to have digital converters and/or a cable or satellite TV provider to continue getting channels.

By doing so, there will be more frequencies for the government to use like for fire, rescue, and the police. By going digital. TV stations will be able to provide better quality picture and sound. Both the government, TV station providers, and the viewers will be benefiting from this change. It's a major change, and a lot of people will be left with major adjustments but in the end, it's all for the good. Hopefully things turn out well for the people of the USA tomorrow.
