The Switch To Digital TV In Houston, As It Happened

Unlike every other media outlet in the country, we warned you that today would bring the switch from analog to digital TV.

So how did it go?

The snapstream blog has collected a montage of the local Houston stations at The Moment of Truth, as seen on an analog TV. The bigger stations generally show a staff member actually throwing the switch, others just go to static.

We can only imagine the screams of shock. From people who haven't seen any of the warnings that have been ALL OVER THE PLACE for the past couple of weeks.
