February 17, 2009. That is the last day you will be able to watch analog TV channels. Even with HDTV becoming more common in households all over the country, for every flat panel LCD or plasma set that is out there, our guess is that there are at least 2 to 3 older analog sets. Considering the large existing base of analog TV's, the existence of the Digital Television Coalition is probably a good thing.
The last thing you want is to be watching CSI Miami one day only to come back the next and find out that you suddenly don't have a watchable TV. So start saving those pennies to pony up for a new HD set or you can remain nostalgic and simply go with a digital to analog converter box and stick with your old TV set.
