The U.S. Senate appeared close to agreement late Thursday on a bill to delay next month's planned transition from analog to digital television broadcasting to June 12 and will likely vote on the bill early next week. The Democrats cited mounting concerns that too many Americans who rely on analog TV sets to pick up over-the-air broadcast signals won't be ready. According to the Nielsen Co., more than 6.5 million U.S. households are still not prepared for the upcoming transition.
If Rockefeller's bill passes the Senate next week, the matter goes next to the House.
