The president said the delay will give viewers who still receive only an over-the-air analog signal more time to obtain a converter box.

ABC-30 will not be shutting off its analog signal next week as originally planned. To continue to receive ABC 30's analog signal, you will not need to hook up a converter box until June.

To receive channel 18, you will need to use a converter box.
