HDTV Obligatory by 31 ugust 1911
HDTV will be obligatory by february 17th 2009 in the US and by the 31st of August 2011 in Canada. The results will be that millions of analogical TVs will be discarded creating a serious environmental problem despite the fact that they can be recycled.
However, a decoder will be available to convert your analogical TV to HD but my bet is that many people will prefer changing their TV to a flat up to date HD model. Already, the old thick analogival TVs and monitors are being replaced by the new flat ACL and Plasma TVs compounding the environmental problem. Using myself as an example, I just replaced my 17 inch thick computer monitor with a 24 inch ACL flat monitor so I have to find a relative to unload my old perfectly good monitor.
