Thanks US Government!
It has been however long, and digital TV is a way of life. I'm not talking about cable, either, but rather broadcast local channels. We don't have an outdoor antenna, just an RCA indoor job. With old school analog rabbit ears, you could watch a snowy but uninterrupted program. Imperfect reception was still followable. Now with digital modern awesomeness, a marginal fringe signal is useless. If the digital antenna is not precisely positioned, you get frozen frames, pixilated images, and interrupted audio. Useless. Bad weather makes it worse.
So thanks, Congress and FCC. You have set TV back over seventy years.
Not even wrapping it in foil will help.
