Most discussions in Washington contemplate some sort of free or subsidized converters for low-income households, paid for by the government, perhaps with the help of broadcasters or consumer electronics manufacturers.

So the government felt the need to legislate this technology, and a by product is tax dollars being spent so poor people can watch tv too.

File this under "Things our government chose to do in place of what they were elected to do". It can go right behind the "Steroids in professional sports" file.

If Congress sticks to that date at least I'll know the max. wait before TWC finally adds ESPN2HD.

Thanks, Saul. Great article. Lots of info that I was unclear about. Very interesting dilemma, to say the least.
