There was a semi-hysterical (and not in the funny sense) piece on MPR this morning about the switch to all-digital TV, and broadcasters' worries about the 5.8% of us in Minnesota who are "unprepared."
First, you have to understand that I haven't had cable since I was living with my parents. Getting 4 or 5 stations has been plenty for most of my adult life, and now that we have kids, even more so. If they're going to watch something, even on PBS, I much prefer the controlled environment of a video to broadcast. We deliberately put off getting fast Internet service because it always seemed to be bundled with cable TV, which we don't need or want. (Also, we have a grudge against Qwest and DSL, but that's another story).
Now that we have Minneapolis' lovely wireless service, we occasionally pacify the kids with youtubes of Cookie Monster (the vintage ones are best) or a train, and we watch the Daily Show one day late online. We've hauled the TV up from the basement only a couple times in the last year - for election night, the convention, and the Inauguration.
So yes, we are UNPREPARED. We're skipping straight from analog to the wireless world. It's just fine this way.
