I don't have an HD capable TV, and don't plan on owning one until I'm FORCED to by the FCC.
I agree, but this series almost changed my mind.
I'm way too cheap....
I'm hoping that when the FCC makes me change, they'll subsidize my replacement television...
I don't. Too bad they already plan to subsidize tuners by auctioning off the reclaimed analog bandwidth.
There are better ways we could spend $1.5 billion dollars than subsidizing consumer electronic devices. I would feel exactly the same if I actually watched television.
Television is not a right. I just don't understand where this attitude of entitlement and indignation comes from about TV. It's a system used to deliver advertisements, propaganda and entertainment. Why should the government subsidize that system?
There used to be an arguement about federal election debate coverage, etc. But now that the Presidential debates are shown on pay for play TV networks such as MSNBC, that arguement is gone. It's all corporate owned and controlled infotainment now.
No, I do not agree with any government subsidy for the HDTV switch.
