You Can Keep Your TV Until June!

I don’t know if you’ve been following this whole mandatory HD TV transitionconversation in the U.S. but the cable companies (I think we can blame them…) were forcing everyone to either purchase new digital TVs or never have television again. Goodbye, rabbit ears. Barack wasn’t for it, citing the economy’s downturn. People are struggling to pay hot water bills and they want to cut free cable? Now, I thought this was pretty fucked up considering many old people have the old TV sets and HD-ready TV’s aren’t cheap if you’re on a fixed income, not to mention the stock market just ate whatever savings you had stacked. As for me, I’m still looking at my TV like, “are you going to hold be down or do I have to throw you out?”
