If I upgrade today, can I begin to receive DTV broadcasting programs or will I have to wait until February 17th, 2009?

If you choose to purchase a new Digital TV or buy a converter box to allow your old TV to work with DTV broadcasting, you can begin to watch Digital Television immediately.

Most all TV stations and cable providers have already began broadcasting both analog and digital television, which allows consumers the choice to upgrade ahead of the February 17th, 2009 date. There are currently 1,631 out of 1,760 full-power television stations in the U.S. already broadcasting digital television signals.
