KHOU has been broadcasting on both analog and digital signals for a decade. We're sending both signals right now, so that both analog and digital televisions will see the same program.

But this Wednesday, KHOU’s master control will flip a switch and send out a specific message only on the old analog signal: the one you get if your TV is attached to a set of rabbit ear antennas.

"People who can’t receive the digital signal will see the bars and from that point they'll know that they have to get a converter," said Frank Peterman, Director of Technology at KHOU-TV.
