Fully Digitized TV in Japan

Japan ended its 58-year-old era of analog television transmission over the weekend as cathode-ray tube TVs are no longer able to display programs without an additional special tuner, following the migration to digital broadcast.

Happily there was no big trouble on that day, and we stepped on the new era.

But it must not be fogotten that many blind people will be inconvenienced by the switch to terrestrial digital TV broadcasts because they use FM radios that can recieve analog TV broadcasts to listen to televison news, culture programs and dramas.
