There is little to watch on commerical TV. And, with a bill for cable TV of about $55.00 or more per month, it ain't going to happen. I'd rather rent a movie and watch it on a regular TV.

Agreed. This is nuts! More money to s select few. There is nothing wrong with the current system, it is all a plan to sell more TVs and digital technology, again providing more business for Best Buy and the rest.

I agree. I won't miss much even if I'm not hooked up by the deadline even though I do have my converter boxes already. I don't get the big fuss over high def as the stations are not broadcasting in 1080 anyway.
