Goodbye analog.


Don't worry, the government only spent $980,273,000 in your tax dollars to give people converter boxes.

Hey, it still cost me $40 even with the coupons. But thank you.

Also, I still only have over-the-air t.v., and you are as old as me.

BTW Canadan tv isn't scheduled to go digital until August 31, 2011, so if you want to watch hockey on channel 9 you'll still be watching analog tv.

Yeah, it is a common misconception that you NEED a new antenna to work with digital TV.
