And this differs from mandating ATSC tuners in all televisions how?


Good point John!

Clearly the ATSC tuner requirement was anti-competitive. But the government decided that it should mandate ATSC to prop up an oligopoly that the government controls.

Should the government mandate that all iPODs and iPhones include an HD tuner?

Sadly, capitalism is being replaced with government controlled markets...
