100 days to DTV transition

Posted:

In 100 days -- February 17th -- watching television as we have always known it will make its most dramatic change yet.

The reason for the switch is a mandate from the US government.

The picture and sound quality will improve drastically, but there are changes you must make at home -- like purchasing a digital converter box.

KWWL will be running two tests on November 20th to help you prepare for the DTV transition.

The first will be during the news at noon, and the second during the news at six.

If your tv doesn't work during these tests give us a call.  We'll have a panel of experts on hand to help you.

Plus, watch KWWL beginning Sunday, November 16th for a series of special reports to find out if you are DTV ready.

We've also created a DTV Answers page on our web site -- click here.
