This is the first time in my 40 plus years of watching TV where one network dominates a marketplace while all the others seem to have no interest what so ever.
|Who said "if you build it...they will come?"|
|Get some tax incentives going specifically for DTV spending...|
|I can't for the life of me understand why they would want to include digital receivers in TV sets. It just desn't make sense when you look at the numbers:|
1. 63% of TV viewers get their signal from Cable
2. 15% of TV viewers get their signal from Satellite
That leaves a total of 22%. Supposedly this is the market for OTA TV viewers.
|You are going to have to go a long way to prove to me that a family with cable in their home and multiple TV sets doesn't have ALL of them hooked to the cable signal.|
|The first number to surface was $300 per TV. In many cases, that would double the cost of the TV set. Do you really think that Joe Public is going to pay twice the price for something he bought last year for half the price?|
|So you are behind the idea of charging the consumer a lot of money in relation to the previous price...and he gets nothing for it. That doesn't sound like good business to me.|
