U.S. More Prepared For Digital Transition

U.S. households are more prepared for the February 2009 cut off of analog television, Nielsen reported Tuesday. 

In January 2008, Nielsen’s first review of all metered households showed that 10.5% of national households would have no operable television in the digital world.  By July 2008 that figure had dropped to 9.3%.

Nielsen also found that, as of July, 20.9% of sample households had at least one set that would not work after the transition date — a decrease from 23% in January.
