DTV Transition Not a Big Deal, Says LIN CEO

May 8, 2008  •  Post A Comment

LIN Television CEO Vince Sadusky likened the digital television transition to Y2K, telling securities analysts this morning that he believes it will not affect most television viewers, TVNewsday reports. Cable and satellite subscribers, who make up 90% of homes, will see no difference in their television broadcasts, while educational campaigns will inform over-the-air viewers of the steps they must take to receive digital signals, Sadusky claimed. Sadusky also stressed that the DTV transition would help stations save money on electricity bills by allowing them to turn off their analog transmitters, the Web site notes.
