1 free MPEG2 encoded is all that is required. Anything else is a business 
question...

What about encrypting mobile transmissions?  

Can't do that to over the air; the die has been cast, unless they want to
give up their 8-vsb transmitters, etc.  I doubt the congress critters will
change that.

I left out the most important part.

The politicians cannot afford to let FREE OTA TV die...


So pPicture this...a brainstorming session at the NAB.

"The problem is all those people who are slipping by without paying 
for their TV fix."

"Maybe we could do like Great Brittain and get Congress to impose a 
TV License Tax, which they would kick back to broadcasters to help us 
compete for programming rights..."

"Yeah, Kinda like the all of these bailouts."

"No, that won't work. Making EVERYONE  pay wouldn't be fair, 
especially all of those poor folks who cannot afford cable or DBS."

"Maybe they could impose the fee only on cable and DBS subscribers!"

"Hmmm...can we get away with that on top of retrans consent?"

"There has to be a creative solution to this problem somewhere."

...

...

"HDTV?"

"THAT'S IT!"


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Regards
Craig
