T-MINUS 13:35:21..20...19...18.... to DIGITAL TV!

It's been a long time coming, but Digital Television will be the only way to watch KMOV programming after 12:01 am Friday morning. Historically, the end of analog television is a big deal. In this 24-hour entertainment world we now live in, it's hard to believe that the first stations to go on the air only scheduled several hours a programming a day, and most of that was in the evenings. The change is upon us, and like it or not you have to be prepared, and I think most people are at this point. Just in case you know someone who is having trouble, here is some important info on where to go for help locally.
