Digital TV Happens Today

Our columnist Joel Johnson posted a few months ago, arguing that people needed to buck up and accept digital TV. It generated quite a bit of ire on both sides of the issue, with some people saying the transition was easy and simple, while others saying a $40 converter box was an added expense that would put television out of the grasp of many people who could formerly afford it.Today is the new and final deadline for analog TV, and stations have begun to shut off their signals. Is anyone noticing a change? Are people still as worked up about this?Photo by Dave Bush for the AP, via The New York Times
