For people like me who can’t justify paying $50+/mo for cable, antenna TV is the only way to watch anything.  Luckily a lot of good stuff comes over antenna, but the gov wants to change that!  They have set a date to change to all digital tv by Feb 17, 2009, which now might get changed again, to some time in June or maybe even July.  This is good news to people like me who were slow on getting their coupon for a converter box.  I was just planning on not watching TV anymore, hulu.com and the networks do a good job at providing it over the internet.

    Why don’t people have them already?? The more they push this back, the longer till more, better HD channels come out! Analog TV is so shitty in comparison.

    A lot of people don’t see the need to buy a new TV when their CRT works perfectly fine, and the converter box offers very little change in quality, and in many cases television broadcast areas will be reduced once the analog signal is turned off. I know I’m not upgrading my TV until my current one stops working.

    Hmm, interesting. So the converter box doesn’t make it better quality?
