DTV: The Puck Could Stop Here For Red Wings-Penguins [Multichannel News]
In other DTV preparedness news, Representative John Dingell of Michigan is warning his constituents, many of whom are fans of the Detroit Red Wings, that they need to prepare today for the digital transition. Otherwise they might not get to watch the deciding Game Seven of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Red Wings and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
In an email to his constituents, Representative Dingell said:
While the original February 17th transition deadline was scheduled to avoid major television events like the Stanley Cup, today's revised deadline falls right in the middle of the NHL Championship as well as the NBA Finals. If you're a sports fan, there's a lot of incentive to make sure you're prepared for DTV so you don't miss out on some great games.
