Just a quick thought... we've been "basic" cable users. Don't actually watch that much, record a little for the 7 year old in the house. How about a government bailout for those of us being forced to switch from perfectly usable analog cable to digital for at least 3x the cost due to the new Federal law coming up in February 2009. Bleh!

Edit: Well, there you go. Just opened the cable bill and there is a possibility of a "subsidized" converter box for non-cable users. I'm seeing converter boxes for as low as $39.99 with a quick online search.

The lowest priced Digital Cable plan is still 3x what we're currently paying — or $39.95 a MONTH. But I can't tell if that's a promotional rate for what they are calling the base package of channels (can't get any stripped down local package?). d-;
