TV Converter Chaos


So according to the news all form of entertainment will cease and people with crappy tvs will have their heads explode soon:

"At midnight on February 17, 2009, all full-power television stations in the United States will stop broadcasting in analog and switch to 100% digital broadcasting." -

What is it about the word midnight being used as part of a deadline that inspires fear?

One of the 108,000 writers over at WiseBread detailed the whole process of how to receive a voucher towards buying a converter box, getting one and ...other stuff here. So if you're american with a craptastic tv or live along the border and enjoy stolen tv waves, be prepared to miss out on Family Guy in February unless you get that converter.

Al Bundy would be screwed.
