With 99% of stations now broadcasting a good digital signal, does it
really matter? I haven't been using NTSC for 2 years.
It's been longer than that for me. My first (and still current, because
of its easily switchable aspect ratio options) did not have an analog
tuner. Out of the other three, one has a broken analog tuner, another is
rarely used and not connected right now, and one more is a backup for my
mom when the low VHF on cable TV gets too noisy. (Thank you marketroids
at channel 5 for caring more about "branding" than technical issues, and
insisting on being cable channel 5).
I actually didn't watch any Fox for about a year until they upgraded
from their old 800 watt (as in eight light bulbs) ATSC transmitter.
There's only one analog channel I watch at all (rarely), and it's a
distant PBS station which I can't receive the digital for. (hopefully
it's just not running at full power and I will receive it
