[opendtv] Re: Incentives for buying integrated DTVs

I agree with that.  But, that's how Marxists deal with people outside the
nomenclatura.  "We know what's best for you, and if you want this giveaway,
you'll do it our way."

Funny that the coupon giveaway isn't means-tested.

Come to think of it, just what coupon giveaway are we talking about?  Last I
checked, they weren't going to start the coupon program until there were
actual STBs available.  So, they have failed so far at seeding the market --
more bad Marxism.

Not unlike the $100 laptop program; they had to retool to make it even
possible.

The US is doing it with $40 STB coupons, presumably from 'money' received 
selling off the spectrum.

Pity that the US is so narrow minded that they only allow the subsidy to be 
used for a government approved STB, not to offset the added cost of an ATSC 
tuner in an integrated set.
