That's a great question. I plan on waiting until tomorrow before asking a local station just that. After all, I don't want to give them a last minute chance to mail an extension request and have it postmarked April 30th, 2002.:p

Free over the air HDTV + Tivo HD + Netflix for Blu-ray and streaming = Bliss

According to an article in today's San Francisco "Chronicle", the FCC says that about 75% of the nation's 1,300 commercial broadcasters missed the deadline Wednesday for turning on their digital signals.

I find that figure absolutely amazing...75%! It shows how little effort most broadcasters have been putting into their digital facilities.

Federal officials said they don't plan to penalize those that didn't come on because they expect most to be on the air by the end of the year. We'll see...
