NEW YORK — TV stations in the U.S. plan to cut their analog signals Friday, ending a more than 80-year era for the over-the-air technology that changed America's landscape, and reshaped and defined its culture.
The Federal Communications Commission estimates that more than 1 million homes still have not installed digital converters or switched to a digital cable or satellite service provider, and has put 4,000 operators on standby to handle calls from confused viewers.
There're a lot more things than TV signals that are confusing to these people.....like left from right, up from down, and the value of gainful employment. How dumb are these people? If you got caught off guard by the digital TV switch today and you cannot afford a $50 converter box, perhaps you should put down the remote, get a job, read a newspaper from time to time, and re-engage with the world.
