    Anybody that watches TV using Antenna, read this

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22401907/

    It turns out that on Feb. 17 2009, the signals that your antenna TV uses will stop being used and you won't be able to watch antenna TV any more without a 40 dollar converter box which is basically cable, I think. It really sucks, the signals people used in the early 40's that created TV will not be used anymore. I don't know about yall but I don't like to change things that have been the same way for 50 years for no good reason, why don't they just update the radios that the firefighters use and leave antenna TV alone.

    Anyway this is my opinion, what do yall think.

    Well it gives those a fair early warning.
    Glad I upgraded in 2000

    I should warn my friend, he still has one and only gets like 11 channels.

    My grandmother used to have one ^_^ sad news that something as ever-lasting as the antenna is now being faded out.

    But there are advantages, digital is much better quality than analog. If your TV doesn't accept a digital signal then I think its about time for a new one anyway...

    What's funny is 90% of the people with native digital sets are driving them with composite or component (i.e., analog) based signals.

    Even funnier is it's incredibly hard to tell the difference going D->A->D (vs. D->D->D) with HD based content. Go figure

    We've all been robbed. I bet we've slowly been down graded (so we won't notice) because the cable companies could make more money by offering a "premium service", or better yet- the quality we received before.
