TV Apocalypse

I was talking with a friend yesterday who had tested their old-school TV and converter kit to see if it would make the jump to the new DTV standard tomorrow (June 12, 2009).

Unfortunately theirs didn’t. If you don’t use cable or satellite, you’ll want to check out “Michigan DTV for Me“, a web site created by the Michigan Television Broadcasters to let you know all about the transition and the scheduled tests to let you know if your television is ready for the digital transition. The tests will be conducted simultaneously on every over-the-air television station in each market.

I doubt the televisions above will make that jump. I also doubt that thy’ll be able to tune in the Wings game! Check them out bigger in’s slideshow.
