I'm sure we can kill NTSC faster than it took the UK to kill the 405 line system.


(It took them only 21 years!)

John -

I'm more thinking of it from the politician's view. They expect some problems from the cut-over and don't want too many people mad at them. If they bribe enough voters in clever ways then maybe they can get away with it, especially if they can claim the bribes are paid for by spectrum sales. But if they feel voters will be very unhappy then the logical thing to do is further delay the transition. This ongoing delay loop is already part of our digital TV plan and I'd like to break out of it sometime in the next few years. But it is not clear we really can.
