    they will make converters for the non compliers for a couple years after that.
    we get a brief on this about once a week. kind of looking forward to it. im sick and tired of trying to explain why analogs look worse than digital signals. or worse yet, why a high def. box doesnt like analog signals period.

    Yes, analog will still be usable, estimated cost for the converter, $50-$100..in addition to the cost of a new analog TV if you're in the market to buy one.
