Real Digital TV

What are missing out on when it comes to digital TV? Well, just look to the UK where you can, for a once of purchase of a set-top box, get access to Freeview. Here is the channel line up. You will notice that there are 42 channels, another 25 radio stations and a heap of interactive TV. It is the kind of things only available on cable here. And that pretty much answers the question as to why we aren’t getting this stuff. After all, doesn’t the government — who regulates broadcasting — have a direct financial interest in cable television?

It only goes to show how poorly we are using our broadcasting resources; something that is a regular theme on this blog (click here).
