TOKYO (AFP) - Japan on Sunday shifted to digital terrestrial broadcasting, switching off its analogue television network in all areas except those worst hit by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, the govt said. Japanese broadcasters ended analogue transmission across most of the country after 58 years. No major problems among viewers were reported. As of the end of June, the Communications Ministry believed at least 290,000 households were still not ready to receive digital signals. The Japan has postponed the move to digital in the prefectures of Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima until the end of March next year due to damage from the earthquake and tsunami.
