Martin Weighs In On Downconversion
Back on April 6th, I pointed out that the current inability of cable companies to downrez digital signals at the headend could make it difficult to put together a worthwhile analog cable package after broadcast analog goes away on 2/17/09. Now Multichannel News is reporting that FCC Chairman Kevin Martin has similar concerns.
At least we agree on something. Time spent worrying about this will take time away from his other big project (sanitizing the airwaves), and that's definitely a good thing.
