"The outgoing Bush administration grossly mismanaged the digital television transition and consumers are confused, households are not prepared, and the coupon program for converter boxes is broken," Rockefeller said in a statement after the House vote.
I've had my boxes for over a year now, and I don't even watch TV. I figured I was one of very few to need one, since everyone else I knew had cable or satellite. Only reason I wanted one was because I lived out in BFE and it helped clear up reception.
Of course, the delay will be rammed down our throats anyway, to ensure that Dear Leader's propaganda reaches as many households as possible.
