How is about NOT helping people? Is Obama your cult leader or something? And believe me, people who have no clue about digital and lose their TV WILL believe it's the end of the world. If Laqueeta or Bobbi-Joe Trailer Mom loses their TV, it is.

Apparently it is news enough.

I don't understand your position at all. It is about helping people, that's the point. It's hardly a big deal one way or another, but giving people more time to avoid being left in the dark can hardly be construed as bending over backwards for ******s or something.

The converters cost $50. The government gives away coupons for $40. Just withhold on your daily ration of lottery tickets and you'll get your damn coverter.

The equipment used for digital converters is much smaller and more efficient. I have also read that by switching to digital it will clear up more radio frequencies for emergency systems.

Do you really think these 6.5 million "affected" people are going to get off their ass and get one with the extra time? TV is not a right.

You don't understand? It actually costs tax payers more money for this small group of people to delay the switch. The gov't is the one paying for the material and commercial cost to update the public about the impending digital switch. In less than a month, it would have been over with. But now it must continue for a few more months.

What better way to get Americans to switch over than to 'black out' their televisions. I'm sure if and when that happens people will switch over very quickly. Besides, is the world gonna end if people don't have television?..

The only people it really affects will die off sometime between February and June 12.
