DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Cable television provider Mediacom says customers in 17 counties in central and Southern Iowa whose televisions are not yet digital ready have been given a two-week extension before analog reception is fully eliminated. The company still has 48 cable channels located between 23 and 78 operating on older television sets.
A phase-out of analog reception began two weeks.
The upgrade to all-digital channels will be complete on April 10th.
For the past six years, customers have received both analog and digital signals through a Mediacom cable connection, but now most analog stations are being eliminated to make room for more high-definition channels and faster broadband Internet speeds.
