2008, TVs stop working....
I understand some law is passed (and delayed a few times) that would cause all broadcasts to be broadcast digitally start in 2008? I am told anyone with old analog tube TVs will no longer be able to watch those tvs w/out buying some sort of box. Does anyone think this will really happen? I bet 90% of the people in this country still have a house filled w/old tube tvs. Are they really going to go out en mass and get these magic boxes. Are you telling me the advertizing community is going to chance loosing out on 90% of their audience for a period of time. This whole thing smells to me..
Should I be spending mucho bucks on an HD LCD tv or something similar out of fear of the tube tv not working or is the real reason just the better picture. Personally, the tubes are tried and true, inexpensive and last. I am concerned about spending 3 times as much on something might last 1/3 as long.
