First In Digital?

We all know that North Carolina proudly claims “First in Flight” on its license plates (much to Ohio’s chagrin). North Carolina also claims other firsts, such as the first state university, the first miniature golf course, and Babe Ruth’s first professional home run. Well, North Carolina will have another first to add to its long list at 12 p.m. on September 8, 2008. At that time and on that date, the Wilmington area will become the first television market in the country to switch to an all-digital signal. The Federal Communications Commission chose Wilmington as a test market for the upcoming nationwide switch on February 17, 2009. Read more about it at the FCC’s “The Digital TV Transition.”
