I hate to see the man take advantage of the little guy as much as anybody, so let me include an email that I received today. It was regarding how in a year from now all TV signals will be broadcast in only digital signatures..... (email below)
You may have heard that on February 17, 2009, all TV stations will begin broadcasting exclusively in digital signals.
Here's what that means: If you are one of the 22 million Americans who use free over-the-air analog broadcasting to watch television, exactly one year from now your screen will go blank. What's worse is stores like Circuit City are ready to sell you some "fixes" that are unnecessary and very expensive, like telling you to get a new TV.
We did a "secret shopper" survey of retailers around the country to make sure electronics stores were prepared for consumer questions about the DTV transition. We found that clerks were offering inaccurate and misleading information.
