FCC Chair Speaks Out Against DTV Transition Delay
DTV transition unprecedented change in communications
While new modes have been added since the original AM radio (FM, IBOC, DTV), and even new features (AM stereo, FM stereo, color television) ... there really hasn't been a case where a certain mode was rendered completely obsolete and unusable.
TV is quite ubiquitous, and its nowhere near what happened during the AMPS/TDMA sunsets. Even color TV was additive, so you can't really call that a transition.
While most of us savvy folks will visit on the web, call the 800 number advertised, or subscribe (continue to subscribe) to premium service television, there are many folks out there who are afraid of technology and can't even program their VCR clocks, let alone hook up a converter.
