Big Island and Kauai Exempt from Digital TV Mandate

I first blogged about Hawaii being first in the nation to switch to Digital TV Signals here.  Well it turns out Big Island and Kauai might be waiting a bit longer then even I most recently reported *edit* at least for digital PBS programming.

Hat tip to Leslie Wilcox as she reports on her blog today:

PBS Hawaii will start a phased digital transition, eventually leaving behind analog technology, which was ground-breaking in its time. We’ll start Jan. 15 on Oahu and in Maui County, moving later to include Hawaii Island and Kauai. (They’re served by translator stations and not transmitters, and therefore are not covered under the federal mandate.)
