A lot of TV viewers woke up this morning to no signal/reception problems whatsoever, and have gone about their normal viewing routine.
Others were not as fortunate.
This is the day that all television stations finally converted from analog to digital broadcasting, after months of warning people to get a converter box and digital antenna, even to the point of pushing back the date from its original February conversion.
If you have cable or a satellite dish, you have no problem.
But if you were just watching traditional television via an aerial, then you will have to pick up a converter box (if for some reason your set is not already digital capable) and a digital receiver (antenna).
Then after hooking up your new equipment, you will still need to let the television search for the channels, for not every station stayed where it was in analog numbering system.

For more information, you can call 1-888-CALL-FCC (Federal Communications Commission) or go to
