Finland goes digital!

After today, there will be no more analog television broadcasting in Finland. The government expects that 10% of people haven't upgraded their TVs with digiboxes to enable them to receive digital broadcasts. You can read more about how the decision was made on the Helsinki Sanomat web page.

Some places in northern Finland (about 2000 households) will not be able to receive digital broadcasts) unless they buy a satellite dish.

In the U.S., the date for conversion is set to February 17, 2009.
