Default Digital TV Conversion

I'll put this here, because it's pretty entertainment orientated. But it's also political. How did something as simple as converting our antiquated broadcasting infrastructure become political? Well, easy, it got politicized.

Quote:
The U.S. House has defeated a bill to postpone the upcoming transition from analog to digital television broadcasting by four months.

House Republicans succeeded in scuttling a bill to delay the transition, which is scheduled for Feb. 17, less than two days after the Senate unanimously passed the plan.

The defeat is a setback for the Obama administration and Democrats on Capitol Hill, who fear too many Americans are not ready for the switchover.

The Nielsen Co. estimates more than 6.5 million U.S. households that rely on analog television sets to pick up over-the-air broadcast signals could see their TV sets go dark next month if the transition is not postponed.
Really? A defeat? On something that's been planned for years? This is hilarious. Well, except that they've spent 400 million already in these fucking "coupons" or whatever so a bunch of people that either don't want to pay, or can't pay. Give me a break. They wanted more money. hundreds of millions more. They want to bail out a conversion. I thought we were going to be doing all this construction and shit and they're arguing about fucking tv signal.

Look, if it's that important that people get their daily obama tv fix, then let Soros or all those rich fucks in hollywood that make this crap pay for it. Seems only right to me.

And I'm sorry if you can't afford real tv, or at least basic cable, but pay for it yourself. We're talking about a 40 dollar piece of converter junk. Get on with it.

Anyways, are you ready? You better be. I know I am.

It's not that I'm not ready for change, I just don't care for it. I have a PS2 and VCR in my room, and I use them both frequently. I wouldn't appreciate it if someone said "get that shit the fuck out and update, son." They can't control that, but they can control the television I get, so I guess I have no choice. Atleast the country's getting it over with. I'll be telling my mom about the coupons next chance I get, because last time I checked, she didn't ask for this change, and no one else in my house did either.

With that said...

Bullshit me? I won't even step to yall

The government does whatever it wants. Get used to it.

1999?? Back in 99 I used my VCR as a hub for my PlayStation and Cable for running the audio out to my Sony Mini-Rack system.

Even I haven't watched a VHS tape in...damn...almost 10 years...

What can I say, I'm old school to an absurd level. Seriously, if you don't wanna pay for Tivo, using blank tapes is the next best thing.

I've had digital cable for the last... ten years or so.

Doesn't affect me. But they have been warning people for months, so STFU if your dumb TV dies.
