Judging from what's been happening since 2002, saying that the switch to COFDM was just a delaying tactic sounds ever more plausible. Depending who was doing the asking. Clearly, the industry as a whole seems to be dragging their feet any way they can, when it comes to FOTA TV. Whether that was to spend another couple of years redoing the planning factors for COFDM, or whether that was keeping the ATSC innovations strictly hidden away from consumers.
