That Old TV Of Yours Is About To Become A Doorstop
Most current TV sets can't receive over-the-air digital signals without an adapter, which you'll need when the analog signals go bye-bye. The cost? $50 to $75 per set. (Or just get cable.)
Broadcasters had been resisting a government mandate to switch completely to digital, which is sure to leave many viewers annoyed when the changeover happens.
The flipside: crisp pictures, vibrant colors and clear sound. And the government will make a bunch of cash when it auctions off the newly unused frequencies- meaning tax cuts for all!
