Interesting article. I'm already using digital cable from Time Warner, so shouldn't be an issue.

Cool. 8)

Sadly, I barely watch TV anymore. I have basic cable here in my apartment, and 15 out of the 25 channels are local College and Community stations. Followed by Home & Garden, Soap Operas, etc...

I watch Jay Leno and David Letterman almost every night though. :wink:

When was the last time the US Congress actually did what they said they would do?

At $50+ a month for (non-digital) cable. I cannot afford to watch TV. And the loaction I am at I dont get good reception with rabbit ears (antena) due to interference from planes...

Clearly, this will not happen. The prices for the tuners are far too expensive right now. Congress will let the broadcasters decide what to do ultimately.
Think of it in terms of the cassette. Do you see music readily available on Cassette or CD? As digital becomes the standard, and the market gets saturated, then the broadcasters will one by one stop broadcasting analog.
I'm seeing this happen in about another 4 to 8 years. We won't be switching to HDTV as the standard however, as those will left to the high end market. But digital will be the standard eventually.
