Community Forum on the Transition to Digital Television

Earlier this year I wrote about the transition to digital television.

This weekend, the Austin Community Technology and Telecommunications Commission is co-sponsoring an educational event to let people know about DTV and how it affects them.

The Austin Community Technology and Telecommunications Commission and the City of Austin’s Office of Telecommunications and Regulatory Affairs will present a free community forum on "The Transition to Digital Television" from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 30, 2008, at the Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center, 808 Nile St.

Members of the community forum are invited to learn more about the digital TV (DTV) transition, and who will be affected by this technological advancement. This transition affects viewers with televisions that operate with roof-top antennas or "rabbit ears."

Digital TV Changeover

I'm 55 plus but even 30 something tech people are not comfortable with the details of this future digital revolution. My co-workers were telling me last fall that I had to either get a new TV or a converter box by February 2008 ... then I heard something on the radio that said 2009 ... so I let them know it was not the coming (which is now) year but the following year ... BUT I bought a new HD TV in October 2007 so I will be ready anyway.
