FCC Mandates That Cable Companies Support Analog TV Sets Through 2012

Have you been sweating the phase-out of analog TV signals that starts in just 17 little months? If you're a cable subscriber, you can breathe easier for a few extra years. The FCC has mandated that cable companies continue to support analog TV sets for at least three years after the transition from analog signals to digital signals. For cable companies, this means either piping an extra analog channel on their already crowded coax or hooking up users of older TVs with converter boxes. In either case, cable companies will probably protest much louder as the DTV deadline approaches.
