Senate Agrees to DTV Delay
If It's not broken, don't fix it.
Those people don't think about the technical aspect that analog TV is somewhat dated, but more importantly, very inefficient. You had the same kind of behavior with farmers, other rural residents, and elderly with the switch to digital from AMPS. They simply couldn't understand why they had to give up their analog phone that worked great for a digital phone with lower quality voice and worse reception.
Of course, the reception was not due to the actual standard, but the fact that digital phones don't operate at the same power level as the old analogs.
