Analogue switch off delay expected
The US Senate has approved a four-month delay in the national terrestrial analogue switch off date moving it to the 12th June 2009.
The House of Representatives still has to approve the bill, which they earlier rejected, but recent compromise agreements are thought to have made passing the bill, this time, much more likely.
The measure is intended to give consumers more time to prepare for the switch-off.
