Only digital tv - tv screen
No, I don't agree with it but that's technology for you. First we couldn't watch anything unless we subscribed to cable and now this! They are saying that in Feb. 2009 all tv will be dititized....you can check out the information on this site although there are a lot of other sites. Even when they talk about it on tv they give a site to look at but I never wrote it down...this site give you a lot of information.... http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080308/COL11/803080385

It mainly concerns people who are still watching tv for free (3 chanels worth). The newer tv's are already capable of receving the signal. But if you're not a cable or satelite subsciber you'll need the box. You can get a rebate worth up to $80 bucks if you have a tv with the oldfashion rabbit ears. www.dtv2009.gov Hope that helps too.
