If FCC thinks this handout will make digital transition sooner, they are kidding themselves. The broadcasters will be tempted to go digital sooner because of this paid ransom, but there is still no motivation for consumers to upgrade, especially since by the sellout, you can guarantee the end of OTA HDTV. What will consumers get what they don't already have? Most of them get good reception through cable and DBS, and hundreds of channels with nothing on already.
