They Lied

The big digital conversion is happening next year and all along they have been saying if you have an analog TV but have cable you have no worries.


According to a report by the Associated Press, cable customers may face additional charges due to the DTV transition. Those with set-top boxes don't need to worry too much, but the over 28 million who plug their cable wires straight into the back of their TVs may have to pay for converter boxes. Check with your provider to determine your situation.

Crap, we plug through the DVD into the TV. I better call our cable people to see if we will be ok or if we need a convertor box.

Nice that they tell us this, I think most people don't know this and will be awfully pissed next February when they can't watch TV.

What do you have to watch on TV that's that important? It's not like educational fishin' infomercials. Do you really enjoy watchin' tOSU beat meatchicken every November, or is the doggy clothes channel at the root of this eveil?
