Vic, if your around, I can't wait to hear your comments about the so called back up plan if E's merger bid does not go thru. I don't know how to bring over a url on here, so I will try and steer you in the right direction.
Seems a Sat49 group (consisting of ABC (disney), CBS (Viacom), NBC (GE) and FOX (News Corp) formed a new group to consider a bid for Direct. Allegedly this group would allow the public to receive national network programming free of charge, "with fees assessed only for customary fee for watching channels," (whatever that means?) which would spur the saturation of High "Density"Television transmissions. AND this will deliver HDTV "expeditiously and inexpensively." "It will revolutionize the way Americans receive their tv signals, and watch tv".
If you have not seen or heard this, I thought you might enjoy it. Care to comment?
