Because of this no one is on board for the US digital transition. Broadcaster, retailers, manufacturers and the public are ignoring it.
Do you really believe some of the crap that you type or is it that your ego is so big that you can't admit that you made the wrong choice in your business decision?
ATSC is here NOW and it will be here for a long time in spite of your lies and attempts to deceive the public that it doesn't work very well.
And, how can you say that broadcasters, retailers, and manufacturer are not "on board"? Broadcasters are broadcasting in digital, retailers are selling lots of digital sets (from the manufacturers). The pubic is spending millions weekly on digital TV.
Well there is your mistake. I was not talking about digital TV I was talking about the over the air broadcast standard, 8-VSB. It is crap.
Retailers are selling lots of digital sets. This has nothing to do with OTA digital modulation. They say that 87% of households depend on OTA analog + OTA digital but 98 plus % of those who are buying these new digital TV sets will attach them to cable or satellite and have their fill of digital TV. Very few will bother are bothering with OTA.
Retailers are not on board with the analog to digital OTA transition. Cable and satellite will convert to digital at their own speed they are not part of the mandated OTA digital transition.
The public is spending billions on digital TV but not on OTA digital TV. The US digital OTA spectrum is going to waste. If it continues Congress is going to be looking into selling it within a few years.
Broadcasters are broadcasting in digital for one reason. Because to not broadcast in digital is to abandon their license which is the only reason they have most of their content that they can force on cable thru must carry.
Without the license their reason for being disappears. Most would be happy to turn off their transmitters to save the electric bill if they could.
