Wow what a waste. They will cause unnecessary pollution. Why do we need to do this? This is unnecessary. Even switching to metric would not produce these results.

Cumbria today was the first place in UK to go digital. When questioned minister in charge of the conversion from analogue to digital in UK said when we were faced with the choice as to opt for quality or quantity we chose quantity. He added even the quality of digital is inferior technically to analogue.

Loads of stations offering cheap products, great.

the content of TV programming continues its downward slide.
I gave my analog TV away 4 years ago, and I don't miss not having a TV

(sarcasm mode on) Bush will probably give each illegal one of the analog tvs to go with the coupons he is going to give them for the boxes and all. (sarcas mode off)

It's so the space freed by HD radio waves can be used for cellphones and other wireless products.

I heard about this on the radio yesterday. It is surprising news, but kudos to BB is starting the trend. I bought an analog (combo) TV from BB last year when I first moved to TX and still have it. Since then, I bought a DLP TV and have a hard time not using it when watching TV, even though it's costing me more (in terms of electricity).
