Senate Agrees to DTV Delay
How much good will this REALLY do?
Now, let's assume we have a delay. How many people will realistically go out in the next few months to upgrade? If you put it in perspective of the 100 million households in the US, the number of people that will be positively affected by a delay becomes statistically insignificant.
Plus, most of the broadcasters out there have been dual-band broadcasting the last year or two. Meaning they have two antennas with two power sources transmitting both an analog and a digital signal. Our local TV station in Sioux Falls, SD could stand to save $3-5,000 a month once they are allowed to shut down their analog broadcast.
I hope TV stations will have the gumption to shut off their services on Feb 17.
