By May 1, 1999, all stations in the top 10 markets affiliated with the major networks (ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC) were required to be broadcasting a digital signal. All ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC affiliates in the top 30 markets were required to have their digital signals on the air (though most filed for extensions). All other commercial stations, including independent stations and UPN, WB, and Paxnet affiliates, have until May 1, 2002, to begin digital transmissions. Well folks, the day is here. HDTV for the masses, right?? So, who's local OTA broadcasters have acutally met the deadline? Locally here in Knoxville, TN, I believe our NBC affiliate began broadcasting a digital signal today. Foolish me I am dishing out the $$$$ for the set top box just to get one channel in HD. I am hoping the other channels around here will follow suit. Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised and find they are setup and running in digital today, too- but I am have not heard as such. I figured since I spend $3k on a HD rear projection set and 1.5k on an HD compatible front projector, I might as well go ahead and dish out an extra few hundred so I can see my one channel.
