Well, these are inquiries *to the FCC*. Not to the retail sector.

The numbers look to me like there is comparatively a lot of interest in
DTT. Would be nice if this creates the renewed interest in OTA TV as was
the case in Berlin when they went through their transition?

Like you say, it's all up to the broadcasters, to offer compelling
programming. Might be worth their while, in this climate of economic
"malaise." I saw a funny picture in the paper of a couple of young girls
demonstrating against high gasoline prices. Their sign said that "Mom
had to disconnect 'cabel' (sic)."

(She must have been half German.)
