Are Portland TV Broadcasts Still Going Digital on the 17th? (updated)

While we are amused that the DTV switchover effective date has been moved off to June, we are cognizant that the only thing that's changed is that the date has moved.

17th of Feb has always been a deadline, not a requirement.

We don't know what Portland's station constellation are going to do. Could go either way, in these parts.

Updated: We've visited 12, 8, 6 and 2's webs, all of them either have a countdown clock that is still set at 12 days or a policy that stands at shifting to all-dig on the 17th. We'll keep an eye on that. But, as of now, you poor schmendricks that waited till the last minute to get a coupon, suck it up.

You can go to Retrevo if you're on the coupon waiting list. They match people what have and don't need to people what don't have and need.

LynnS at OMI says KGW and KPTV will be making the swtich on the 17th and scheduled. (Scroll to the bottom of the post)
