Digital TV Moves?

Digital TV With a German Accent

Lawmakers in the House of Representatives will consider Wednesday whether to emulate Berlin in order to speed up the transition of U.S. television airwaves from analog to digital signals.

The Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet hearing is today — The Digital Television Transition: What We Can Learn from Berlin.
