The 2009 Digital Transition

Only full-power channels are converting to Digital on June 12, 2009.

Cocola Broadcasting low power TV stations do not have to convert to digital at that time. The date for Low Power conversion has not been set by the FCC. Viewers who have recently purchased new TV sets have both analog and digital tuners so they will continue to receive all our stations with no problem.

For those viewers that have older analog only sets they will have to purchase a digital converter box with "analog pass thru" capability. With this "pass-thru" box they will continue to watch our Low Power TV stations.

The manufacturers have indicated that these models are capable of passing analog signals through to the TV set :

-   Alpha Digital AT2016
