Alert: House Vote Will Further Delay Availability of HDTV
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Last week the House of Representatives voted in favor of reauthorizing the Satellite Home Viewer Improvement act without including a provision that would permit satellite television providers to deliver ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX in HD to households that currently cannot receive a digital signal from their local broadcaster. [/font]

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Recent data collected by the Digital Transition Coalition reveals that consumers in more than 39 million U.S. households across America, especially those in rural areas of the country, still aren’t receiving the network digital TV service they have been promised. [/font]

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Are digital signals available in your state? Is your state is being left behind in the digital transition? Visit to view the first-ever state-by-state maps that show strong evidence that tens of millions of households are doing without digital television. The maps illustrate the real story. When it comes to the transition to digital television, broadcasters are dragging their feet and are not delivering what consumers want: HDTV.[/font]

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Take Action![/font]

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The House vote is not the end of this fight. The focus is now on the Senate, where there is a bill that includes the “digital white area” provision that will speed the availability of HDTV. Visit and send a letter to your Senators urging them to support the Senate bill that would allow you to receive network programming in HDTV from your satellite TV provider.

"The money raised from auctioning off the analog spectrum could be returned to the U.S. taxpayer or applied to the nations deficit."

I got a chuckle outta that one. Yes, it could. I'm just a bit skeptical.
