Digital TV Transition Gains Speed

According to a report in Betanews, Best Buy is phasing out old analog NTSC sets.  The transition to digital is getting well underway.  The analog shutoff date is February 2009, and it appears to be a firm date that may prompt other retailers to set their own dates.

It reminds me of when Circuit City stopped selling prerecorded VHS movies.  To this day, though, Wal-Mart still sells VHS movies, albeit discounted.
