Despite the passing of a bill by Congress to delay the transition from analog to digital television until June, hundreds of stations across the United States have decided to stick with the original deadline of Feb. 17.
The country's transition to digital television is being postponed until June 12, following a vote in the House of Representatives that sends the bill to the White House, where President Barack Obama is expected to sign it.
