Analog TVs will no longer receive a signal come Feb. 19, 2009, unless users update their hardware to receive a digital signal.
Federal officials announced details Monday about how that transition will work, saying the government will help consumers buy the necessary equipment to upgrade to digital -- a converter box that attaches to the TV set.
The Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) said it is setting aside $990 million to pay for the boxes. Each home can request up to two $40 coupons for a digital-to-analog converter box, which consumer electronics makers such as RCA and LG plan to produce. Prices for the box have not been determined, but industry and consumer groups have estimated they will run $50 to $75 each. go to story
[Just yesterday we read that last weekend President Bush submitted to Congress proposals to cut spending on agriculture, education and other programs in order to find money to pay for 8,200 more troops (see White House lists cuts to pay for more troops, USA Today, 11 March 2007), but evidently no cuts to the $990 million set aside for the Dept of Commerce NTIA program to provide free $40 vouchers to households to upgrade their analog television sets. Americans can do without food and education, even without medical care, but even Bush is wise enough to know that depriving them of their TV sets would be downright dangerous: they might wake up and see what's really going on.]
Captivated by Television
excerpt from morning walk, December 12, 1973, Los Angeles
Prajapati: ...told Srila Prabhupada, that
it was published in a nationwide magazine. They showed that where
people's trust was. They weren't trusting anything very much, but they
trusted the medical people number one, and organized religion as such
was way, way down, number eight or so. Why are people trusting the
doctors so much?
