Idaho TV Stations
The following is a quote taken from the FCC site, and very well sets the stage for what we are trying to present here:
Digital Television (DTV) is an advanced broadcasting technology that has transformed the television viewing experience. DTV enables broadcasters to offer television with better picture and sound quality, and multiple channels of programming. Since June 13, 2009, full-power television stations nationwide have been required to broadcast exclusively in a digital format.
The switch from analog to digital broadcast television is known as the Digital Television Transition. In 1996, Congress authorized the distribution of an additional broadcast channel to every full-power TV station so that each station could launch a digital broadcast channel while simultaneously continuing analog broadcasting. Later, Congress set June 12, 2009 as the deadline for full power television stations to stop broadcasting analog signals.
Up until October 2008 this page dealt with Analog stations only --
As these page were re-built in March, 2014, they were designed to reflect the change
to Digital. The historical information will be retained as much as
possible as the station's pages are updated.
LP stations have not yet been given a deadline to change to digital, and many
are still analog. Stations with as service designation of TX are still analog.
