Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. It's a great time to reflect on how fortunate we are to be Americans. Have a great holiday and I'll be back on Monday.
Nielsen Says Fewer Households Are Unprepared for DTV Transition [Multichannel News]
According to a report from the Nielsen Company, the number of households that are completely unprepared for the digital transition dropped from October to November. There are 7.4% of American households that remain unprepared for the transition to digital television - that's over 8 million households that are not ready for the February 17th deadline next year.
Other data in the report indicates that households with older heads-of-household tend to be better prepared for DTV than younger households. That sounds counter-intuitive to me so I wonder if this data is a good indicator of what's going to happen when they flip the switch in February. And a larger percentage of Hispanic households still have not prepared compared to non-Hispanic households.
