I love how the government keeps running these PSA's warning that your TV won't work with an antenna after the beginning of next year unless you get a converter.  Its funny how the government is scared people may wind up not watching TV anymore, and perhaps realize that it doesn't fucking matter. :lol:

I'm glad someone else noticed these commercials as well. Honestly, who really gives a fuck? Why is my tax money being spent on these bullshit commercials?

Because they're a strange annoyance and an indication of how stupid our government is becoming by wasting tax money on these commercials. Also it's a major change in the media system in America which is kind of a big deal considering how hooked Americans are to their television. Considering how stupid these commercials are the implication of change in the American way of life they're signaling it seems like kind of discussion worthy.

I'm assuming anyway... I didn't make the thread so I can't tell you but that's my guess.

thats a good point SV.  I was thinking more along the lines of TV as Soma for the masses, and how the government is probably scared people might just stop watching if their TVs don't work, and they might actually start thinking for themselves and "waking up"

The government is just trying to forewarn people.  The amount of people affected by this is probably very small.  Who watches TV with "rabbit ears"  nowadays?

I do, Antenna straight outta the 70's, plus us people who have tube TV's not all of use could afford to go out and by a new TV when they quit making them the old way.

So then, what do you think?  Did the commercials inform you of the upcoming change?  or did you know about it beforehand?

i didn't have a damn clue but I know that when something goes out dated it's time to adjust. yeah TV sucks and each individual wouldn't even be paying more than a penny for those commercials, I mean it's stupid to complain about taxes paying for commercials when tax money is being used to make bombs that kill people.
