So, over here in America, in 2009 it will become a law that all television must be DTV. I'm amazed that people are so addicted to TV that the government feels the need to do this. I don't wanna pay so my ****ing TV will have the exact same TV. No wonder the generalization is that Americans are a bunch of fat asses, it's cause we watch so much goddamn TV. Are people in other countries so dependent on TV as a fixture in their life?

EDIT: Yeah, I ****ed up my information, but this is a stupid concept and the 2nd article says 8 hours a day per household in America.
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

They're not all going to be HD, it's just that they have to have a digital signal. If you get your cable through "rabbit ears" on the top of your TV, you're most likely ****ed. Most newer TVs will be fine though. I wouldn't call it an advancement in us being lazier since there's not a major difference in my mind.

Its not going to be all HD, its going all digital. It only affects you if you get TV through an antennae, all the change is happening at the stations.

Go you mean all tv has to be digital? They are currently making all tv signals digital in the UK

wrong. It will not be in HD. It will just be digital signals to free up the previously analog aairwaves for new radio stations and such.

Only if the antenna is actually built into the TV, otherwise one can just purchase a digital converter box. The government is also giving each household two $40-off vouchers to use towards the boxes.

It's funny, because who really wants to bother upgrading their tv with all the crap that's on it now...
