Those that have a HDTV already wont be affected, as they have cable or satellite. In which they have a special HDTV cable box that gives them a HD picture. Though they have to pay extra for it.
I should be ok for a while as i have cable. I just hope they continue to provide the analog signal. Hate to have to shell out for a new HDTV, a dam HD box, and HD service.
From the commercial I saw yesterday, cable companies such as Time Warner Cable covered the digital switch with the new boxes. If you don't have an up to date box just call the company. They should replace it for free.
