President-elect Barack Obama is urging Congress to postpone the digital switch. We already made the transition to digital television; the rest of the country is scheduled to on February 17th. Obama's transition team co-chair John Podesta is concerned many Americans who rely on analog TV sets won't be ready. The incoming administration is pushing for a delay, in part because the government is having trouble issuing enough coupons to people for digital TV converter boxes. Some officials also said the government is not doing enough to help consumers make the transition.
