Well, it looks like the silent majority prefers broadcast TV the way it was ten years ago and prior, over the way broadcast TV is now.

The moral? nof everything that is new is necessarily better than what it replaced or supplants.

That is not what the results of your poll indicate. Your results are meaningless because the poll question is biased and will illicit a specific response. The only thing it indicates is people prefer a little interference over nothing, didn't see that one coming. If you want an accurate poll as to whether people prefer the new digital standard or the old analog broadcasts that is what you need to ask them. That said this is a forum about technology and there will be a bias towards the new standard if you were to create such a poll.

It's a small issue you are referring to that affects a minority of people in outlying areas many of whom will benefit from this in other ways.


The majority has benefited with some of the highest quality HD you can get, about 3X more channels and more room for other very high demand cell services.



This is like trying to argue we should of stuck to horseback because cars can't travel on some mountain trails.
