HD TV is ineffective. You could provide free cable access to CSPAN and our local stations.
The reception on HD - changes with our weather. I can not use my TV at all. The majority of Americans can not afford cable or shouldn't have to pay for it since we had no choice in switching to HD. I spent money trying to add extra HD specific antennas to get any reception. It doesn't work even with the extra 90.00 I spent. Analog was free. I believe the fair thing to do, is provide a service like cable that gives us what we use to have. We have lost television reception, for emergencies of any kind and service that many of us have had our entire lives. This step toward HD reception has failed.
