Analog TV lives for four more months
The House voted 264-158 on Wednesday to postpone the conversion from Feb. 17.
Why the delay? It was feared too many viewers wouldn't be ready by the original deadline. Once analog signals are cut off, viewers with older analog TV sets that receive broadcasts with an antenna must buy a digital TV or install a converter box to keep getting signals.
Ahead: The Senate passed the measure unanimously last week, and President Barack Obama promises to sign it.
