This is really amazing. If people can’t figure out what is going on with their television after the nonstop advertising, media coverage, and that ill-fated NASCAR sponsorship… what more could the FCC do? Do it and get it over with so that the bandwidth can be freed up for better uses. On one hand Obama wants to invest in broadband infrastructure but on the other he wants to delay the digital TV switchover that will free up more bandwidth for wireless broadband.
WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team Thursday asked key members of Congress to consider delaying the nation’s switch to digital television scheduled for Feb. 17, saying there is “insufficient support” for the problems consumers will experience during the shut-off of analog signals.
