    I would give them a call and find out what time they are planning to change, and make your plans from what they give you...

    Don't know what is happening Nationwide, but here in NY at least a couple stations are mentioning you must rescan at 12:30PM (Not AM).

    The issue here is that the stations are free to cutoff analog / move their digital anytime from 0000 12 June through 2359:59 12 June - no mandated set time, just "sometime" on the 12th. That's why my suggestion "if you're concerned about a particular show, call the station that carries it about their plans" is really your only option, unless they are advertising their plans (at least one station here is - and it's at 1 PM) .

    The OP (and everyone else) can just pull up their TVFool report and compare current digital or analog report to the post transition report.

    They do not say what time it will happen but I too heard 12:30PM for NYC.

    Many channels are not changing and most that are, are do it around noon time.

    I just got an email from Nashville's CBS affliate that Channel 5 (CBS) and Channel 8 (PBS) are switching at midnight tonight. They are also switching frequencies to their default ones (5 and 8).
