74. There will still be broadcast tv, just the large stations
Edited on Tue Jan-22-08 02:14 PM by bigbrother05
have to go digital. There are smaller, low power stations that service local communities that don't have to switch, but will be at a disadvantage with everyone using digital only sets. The $40 is considered the entry level cost of a stand alone box to convert digital to analog. It pretty much sucks that they were unable to come up with a new standard that would recognize the legacy system, but it is primarily due to bandwidth issues in the larger markets. Hope the $40 per box giveaway will be paid for from the fees charged for the old bandwidth to be relicensed.
edit to correct grammar
