Analogue TV Turn Off

An interesting quote from a post by Robert Scoble on the switch from analogue to digital TV:

In this case I think it’s sheer idiocy to plan on analog TV getting turned off. It’ll never happen. Not in the next 10 years. Sorry.

The rest of the post highlights that people like his Dad will be difficult to switch – exactly the same concerns that have been raised in the UK where analogue TV starts being turned off next year.

Of course over here we do have Digital UK who offer help with the switch, and subsidise the changeover for those who can’t afford the switch – however I doubt the great switch-off will be without problems, especially in the first few regions that switch.
