For the past year and a half we have been inundated with commercials reminding us that in February 2009 if your Television is still an antiquated piece of shit you're no longer going to get a signal... WE GOT IT ALREADY! Please fucking STOP with the reminders every single commercial break on every god damn channel! At this point I really give a shit if Grandma Anges' Television is going to DIE in February. If she hasn't seen the commercials BY NOW, too BAD! Enough with a reminder every five minutes. They are now annoying and getting more and more frequent. What are these reminders going to be like in January if November and December have been literally every commercial break and on the major networks they even have a continual stock style ticker tape scrolling at the bottom of the screen DURING programs reminding to get a converter box to switch over. I would like to watch my shows WITHOUT a ticker tape throughout the entire program please, the commercials are BAD ENOUGH! If some old fart gets no TV in February, at this point it will be their OWN GOD DAMN FAULT, it's not like we haven't been reminded thousands of times now. RAWR! STOP!

LOL. I expect when February comes, my parents will spend several more months discussing whether they want to bother having television before (maybe) getting a converter box.

Heh. I wonder how it's going to go over here come February. With over 60% of Puerto Rican homes receiving TV over the air, a severe shortage of converter boxes for months (and they are still hard to find), and a mountain range that has always made UHF worthless (which almost all channels will now be on), it is not going to be pretty. I suspect cable and satellite companies are going to be the big winners when it's all over.

And lets not forget the newscasters talking about it on every news show on every channel. I want to throw my remote at Lori Stokes so badly. AND, if you have a HDTV already, one of the hd channels has infomercials about it. Uh, hello! Why have a 30 infomercial on a hd channel about converting to hd. Evidently, a smart person would realize this is useless to those people who already have hd. something must have clicked in our feeble little minds.

I know this is a little late, but aren't they waiting until June or something now?
