Senate Looks to Spend $3B on Digital TV
The digital conversion date keeps getting pushed back. I think everyone was supposed to start broadcasting DTV next year. Now, analog signals will be switched off at the end of 2008/early 2009. Of course, everyone will need a digital TV (or conversion box) to get the signals. And Congress doesn’t want anyone to be unable to watch TV. So they want to help people afford the converters. To the tune of $3B. Your tax dollars at work.
