You can still watch cable TV in analog after the flash cut, except that that the station's signal being picked up at the cable provider would the digital signal.
I think the politicians are going to legislate to postpone the flash-cut once it's closer to the election, just to get votes to be re-elected.
We will see, what will happen.The cable co's love the money flowing in their over inflated pockets for renting the cable boxes. since everyone and their brother and sister need one to receive cable tv after they go all digital. $5.00 surcharge times
3 or more per household times millions of subscribers.Wow.When Comcast extended basic goes digital , I will tell them forget it, and just give me lifeline for now.
I hope the quality of tv programing will get better,maybe back to pre 1990 standards.whats on now is not worth to go out to spend $1500.00 to $2.000 or more on new digital entertainment equipment for watching reality shows,nighttime game shows.infomercials and poorly written sitcoms. also I'm not into sports like I was a long time ago.If this dtv conversion was 20 plus years ago. I will be the first one on the block to have a new setup.ok , I have to stop fussing about it again.
P.S. can someone please explain what does Flash Cut mean. Thanks.
