Five local TV stations convert to digital tonight
At midnight, five Tampa Bay area TV stations will end their analog broadcasts and switch to digital signals -- despite federal legislation authorizing stations to delay the transition to digital by four months.
The stationâs planning the switch tonight include WEDU, PBS channel three, Sarasotaâs ABC affiliate- WWSB, WCLF- the Christian television station, Univisionâs WVEA and WTTA-Channel 38.
WTTAâs chief engineer, Bob Hardie joins us now. Heâs been active in the local broadcast engineerâs group , trying to get the word out about what digital conversion means for people who do not have satellite or cable, who donât have a digital television set or who donât have a digital conversion box already hooked up to their vintage television set.
