DTV Unreadiness Drops Again
The number of U.S. households who are "completely unready" for June's DTV transition has dropped to 3.4 percent, according to numbers released by The Nielsen Co.
The number is half of the 6.8 percent figure of last December, which dwindled to 5.1 on Feb. 1, and 3.9 percent on March 1. The last time the survey was taken, March 15, the figure was 3.6 percent. The 3.4 percent amounts to about 3.8 million housholds.
Albuquerque-Santa Fe, once again, was named the least-ready market, followed by Dallas-Ft. Worth and Houston; Providence-New Bedford, meanwhile, was pronounced "completely ready."
