The digital TV transition deadline is today, whether you are ready or not, and last-minute surveys suggest at least 2 million households may not be ready. The numbers of unprepared households has come down dramatically--by 3 to 4 million--in the past four months since the original DTV deadline was postponed, but 2 million is still a pretty big number. Will they ever be ready?
A survey from research firm SmithGeiger found 2.2 million households were not ready for the transition at the beginning of June, while another survey from Nielsen Co. said the number was closer to 2.8 million.
