The looming June 12 digital-television transition has spurred 5% of U.S. television households—or about 5.7 million homes— to pay for a cable or satellite service, Multichannel News reports.

About 26% of U.S. television households in the past year either bought a digital converter, a new TV set or a subscription to cable or satellite delivery of TV services in advance of the deadline, according to a survey from Knowledge Networks, a research company.
