WNDU will be participating in the Indiana analog shut-off test on Wednesday night. At 7:30 p.m., programming on the analog signal will be turned off to help viewers see if they are ready for the switch to digital television.
The test will last for five minutes beginning at 7:30. At the end of the DTV test, programming will return to its regular schedule.
During the test, if your television is not set up for the digital switch, you will see this message:
To continue to receive your television signals, you can upgrade this set to digital with a converter box. The government offers you two $40 coupons toward the cost of converter boxes.
You can also purchase a new TV set with a digital tuner, or subscribe to a pay service like cable or satellite. If your TV is connected to cable or other paid service, contact your service provider to find out when they will be DTV ready.

Another statewide test will take place again in January, and remember WNDU has a similar minute-long test during NewsCenter 16 at 6 each Tuesday.
The nationwide switch to digital television will take place at midnight on February 17, 2009.
