I keep hearing rumors that after January, 2009 you won't be able to have a conventional TV hooked up to the coax jack in the wall. Some converter is needed.
Anyone know more about this? Comcast keeps trying to upsell me to get it now, but as far as I'm concerned they can take a hike (I hate Comcast).
At the same time, I'm content with the lousy picture we have now. Sure it'* somewhat fuzzy and the audio isn't top notch, but it does the trick for the very little we watch TV. I see no reason to upgrade. If I'm forced to, I'll probably just turn off my cable TV service. All of this seems like a ploy to force us to upgrade so that they can rape us even more on the rates in this little thing they claim isn't an oligopoly.
