    Friday Marks Final Signoff for Analog TV

    On Friday, television's analog signals went off the air, to be replaced by the new digital signals, and the old bandwidth will now be sold off for other purposes. Those who waited too long to purchase their converters, and who also have no cable or satellite, are now screwed. They should have made their move while making the move was good, and the converter boxes were almost free.

    Some of those who made the move in time still don't have television because they don't know about one thing you absolutely have to do.

    IMPORTANT: When you plug in your converter box, don't forget to scan for signals. Otherwise, it is not going to work.
