144. and you have incorrectly claimed those ads are from the government. They're not.
The ads to which you refer are from the cable and broadcast industries and are not mandated by the government. The fact that broadcasters emphasize the improved picture quality and don't discuss the fact that the reclaimed spectrum is being used in part for public safety (and to generate revenue for the treasury) is hardly surprising since all the broadcasters care about is making sure that they don't lose audience.

You suggested that the government has been misstating the reasons for the transition. I pointed out that the government's statements about the reasons for the transition are not inaccurate and do not focus only on the improved quality of the pictures.
