|Most people have and want TVs that cost under $200 and are 25" or below. HDTV will give them really nothing. Any digital picture on a screen that small looks great. And these folks buy mainly on price and aren't going to pay 2 or 3 times what they used to. Even if they go digital it will be low end SDTV. And since this will cost more than it used to, they will be angry about even that.|

Cheap SDTV receivers are exactly what are needed to make digital broadcasting profitable. The whole point is that these sets would be compatible with HDTV, although displaying it at SDTV resolution. Viewers who watch a digital station on one of these cheap sets count just as much in the ratings as those watching on high end systems.
