With the digital TV transition hard date now just over 40 days away, the number of U.S. that would lose their analog signals continues to shrink. According to Nielsen estimates through April 26, 3.5 million households, or 3.1% of the nation's TV homes, remain completely unready for the June 12 switch. That represented a more than 100,000 household improvement from the prior two-week period. Among Hispanic households, the number of households that were not prepared for the DTV transition declined to 5% from 5.4%.
