We Want Our HDTV

Record #:
University of North Carolina public television stations are facing a deadline mandated by the Federal Communications Commission in 1997. They will have until May 2003 to convert their two studios, eleven statewide transmitters, and twenty-six translators to digital technology or face going off the air. To do this will cost $64.5 million, a difficult task when the yearly budget is $21 million. Station management indicates the conversion can be done before the deadline, if the $3 billion university bond issue is passed by the voters in November.
