OK, so I just learned (thank you Felix) that in 2009 TV is moving into a new era. Analog TV (what is broadcast over the airwaves currently) will no longer exist as of Feb 17, 2009. What does this mean? Old TVs that do no have a digital tuner will no longer work without a digital converter. Not to worry, they only cost about a hundred bucks and the government is offering $40 off coupons to be announced here.
And here is a link to all the info straight from the guys who caused all this turmoil. This site even comes with a countdown to the dreaded day of conversion!
It has been suggested that TV will no longer be free, but that is not the case, you just need t right equipment to get it.
