      From HDTV Magazine:

      WASHINGTON-January 31, 2007-The majority of U.S. households that receive
      their television signals over the air are still unaware of the digital
      TV transition even though an estimated 22 million over-the-air homes
      need to make some kind of digital decision by February 17, 2009,
      according to a Association of Public Television Stations (APTS) survey.

      The bulk of the survey participants-61 percent-had no idea that the DTV
      transition was taking place. Ten percent said they had limited
      awareness, while 25 percent said they were somewhat aware or very aware.
      While some respondents were aware of the digital transition, 53 percent
      had no idea when analog transmissions were scheduled to be turned off.
