Hence the signal is encrypted; I have a analog radio yet the signals are digital yet I do recieve the digital signal via my analog radio and am happy with the SOUND that comes out of my box!!! It is another way for the government to get into your home.

I’d be happy watching Hee-Haw rather than put up with all the bombardment of nonsensical 2-note jingles gnawing at my ear with wanton lyrical quavers piercing through my ears forcing me to grind my teeth in despair through every 30-second commercial. Cable has more commercials than it’s worth. I just dusted my VCR and DVD players. Suddenly I care a little more about NetFlix.

And where in the amendment to free speech does it say anything about television? You can pay for Internet service. Pay for a converter box, pay for a TV with a digital tuner, pay for cable, or do nothing and watch the snow on your TV.

They were cheap enough that I could take one with me. The expensive digital alternatives won’t be going with me in the next emergency.

Neilsen is inaccurate to say the least. and…yes, Les just wants sympathy.

As of this afternoon, I get one. I’m torn – should I pay for TV that I used to watch for free, or just abandon TV for the internet and get the rest through Netflix and Redbox? Or is my neighbor right, and this is just a big shift by the Gov’t to get more money into the economy to offset big auto?
