Obama Signs DTV Transition Bill Into Law

Like it or not, it's official. President Obama has signed the bill that pushes back the DTV transition back to June 12. Let the PSA's begin.

Obama said, ""During these challenging economic times, the needs of American consumers are a top priority of my administration. This law, which was crafted in a bipartisan way and passed overwhelmingly in the House and Senate, ensures that our citizens will have more time to prepare for the conversion."

Now, this hasn't stopped many stations from sticking with the original February 17th date. 491 stations want to switch as originally planned, and 190 stations have already switched.
