U.S. Digital Television transition Delayed to June 12th

On the 4th the House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to delay the transition that was set to happen on the 17th.   The cause of the delay stems from the lack of money funding the “free Converter boxes” initiative.    The bill allows stations to switch before this date if they choose.   

Another interesting note is the fear of a massive upswing in heavy metals in landfills due to consumers throwing away their old analogue sets instead of recycling them. 

Folks, please find a recycler in your area using the E-cycling Central website: http://www.eiae.org/
