The US Federal Communications Commission mandated in 1996 that TV broadcasters switch from analog signals to digital by the year 2006. TV stations have been forced to upgrade their equipment at a very steep cost, even though most viewers are unable to watch without buying new equipment of their own. Almost everyone involved thinks digital TV will be better for consumers in the long run. As it is now, 84 percent of recent HDTV buyers rated the amount of programming available for them as “poor,” and 62 percent felt they weren’t getting their money’s worth out of their new set.
