TV USE to be free till cable stepped in

and then when cable stepped in they started to charge for the free channels they still do

you can get a box and get those free channels.. but not many and it doesnt come in so well..

but I do not think the government should be forken up free cable bills for the poor..


sorry thats a big NO

Right! Why not? Then they can send out a schedule of required programs to watch to make sure we get a full dose of brainwashing.

But, hey, if it's free, count me in. I'm now all about what this country can do for me as I now understand this is the wave of the future.

The future is in taking all you can and giving back as little as possible. I must keep up with the times.
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

The ONLY reason I would remotely agree to this is that it was the gubment that FORCED US to switch to digital tv - and now most rural people cannot get a signal on their tvs, even with new expensive antennas.

In fact, I think all the libs in govt who voted for this crap should be the ones to pay for it - out of their own darned pockets!!!!!!!!!!

Listen, in the end...you are better off without it. So if anything thank your government for tipping you off with their free offerings of digital boxes and cell phones. Nothing comes easy or free, without a hitch. So now you are tipped off what to stay away from in the coming days.

Bush Signs Bill Ending Analog TV

President Bush signed legislation Wednesday that cuts off over-the-air analog broadcasting Feb. 17, 2009, and includes up to $1.5 billion to help fund converter boxes to prolong the useful life of millions of analog TV sets.

After the cutoff, the nation’s 1,749 full-power TV stations will be required to transmit only digital signals. The termination of analog broadcasting will free up 60 megahertz of spectrum that will be auctioned to wireless-broadband providers. Congress is expecting auction revenue to reach $10 billion.

The analog-TV provisions were contained in the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, which includes about $40 billion in budget cuts over the next five years.

“With today's enactment of the budget-reconciliation bill and its digital-television provisions, we have crossed an important threshold,” National Association of Broadcasters CEO David K. Rehr said in a prepared statement.

“NAB is pleased that Congress adopted many pro-consumer DTV measures in the legislation, and we're encouraged that the bill thwarted cable-industry attempts to degrade the quality of HDTV pictures to consumers,” he added.

Given the amount of subliminals/predictive-programming/mk-frequencies they use in the programs/programming... it is quite a wonder that they're not giving it out for free... for maximum distribution to the masses...

I was just about to say this, but from their perspective why not charge for it people are willing to pay to be programmed.

I'm not old enough to remember this (may have been but my parents didn't get cable until I was 14, 1996), but I've been told that cable was commercial free at one point, and that is why you paid for it.

So you are right, since there are commercials, it should be free.

you could always get put in prison. Free cable, free meals (3x a day) free internet, free heat/air, free room....

Our cable will be the next thing to go, which really I can live without. I will miss football and College Basketball but it is never on anyway unless a kid turns it on or a game is on.

That\'s true,

Psychopaths, and Malignants want to brain-wash me, but the creatures want ME to pay for the privelage of being brain-washed?

Go figure?

That is one of the arguments regarding Satellite TV.

Psychopaths and Malignants can bombard my property, and my chromazomes, and my body with microwave energy.

But I cant gather their microwaves in a dish collect the signals and decipher what kind of trash they are bombarding me with?
