Just wanted to clarify (I hate seeing this spread around incorrectly). The 2009 switch to digital has absolutely nothing to do with HD. It doesn't mean everything will become HD. It doesn't mean your TVs will cease to work. All it means is that the frequency range currently being eaten up by old, analog, over the air broadcasts is being converted to a digital format. The only people affected are people who currently recieve their TV programming via a non-digital TV connected to an antenna. Anyone using cable or satellite is unaffected.
