I don't know what commercials you mean, but I am still comparing apples
with apples. The Dotcast Moviebeam scheme works because the subscribers
are vetted by the company. And it requires a lot more signal umph than a
regular 8-VSB scheme would require, for much less channel usefulness
than an 8-VSB version.

Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.

wrong end of a telescope...and that enables
you to laugh at all of life's realities."
