So, the US is now also switched over to digital television. I found a nice compilation of analog shutdowns on youtube: 2009 DTV Transition: Analog TV Shutoffs in Los Angeles As They Happened and one particular WABCEndsAnalogShrtVrs061209 from ABC channel 7 New York. Some stations made a nice item out of it with a countdown and some just dropped their analog signal in the middle of a program. One big thing in the US is a lot of TV channels use their channel number in their branding (like ABC 7 for WABC above) and the US brother of DVB-T named ATSC has provisions for channels 'named' with a number which is not equal to the VHF/UHF frequency.
Update: Journal entry describing the end of analog tv broadcast: uneventful
