A city in North Carolina became the first in the U.S. to switch from analog to digital TV this week.......Washington (ChattahBox) – A city in North Carolina became the first in the U.S. to switch from analog to digital TV this week.

FCC chairman Kevin Martin and Wilmington, NC Mayor Bill Saffo flipped a giant light switch to symbolize the move from analog TV to digital TV.

The city immediately  became the very first city in the U.S. to make the full switch from analog to digital TV.

All of the stations in the city had already shut off all analog TV signals prior to this, so it was all symbolic.

This shows though that we are now officially ready to switch from analog to digital TV next February.

Wilmington, North Carolina will be the first test  market to try it out.
