Re: end terrestrial TV broadcasts

The NAB actually makes a good point for a change:

NAB has said it is not opposed to the government plan if broadcasters' move is truly voluntary and they are compensated. But it has also argued that broadcasters' one-to-many delivery model is more efficient than the cellular distribution the FCC is so high on, and that broadcasters have reason to hang on to their spectrum to delivery high-quality HDTV pictures and new services like mobile DTV and multicast channels. They also argue that given the economy and increased broadcast picture quality, some cable subs are cutting the cord to return to over-the-air TV, a point even some cable operators have conceded.

The NAB has been making these points for quite some time now. Where have you been?

The problem is "for a change." The problem is that the NAB's stance has been consistent so this isn't exactly "for a change." The NAB has always contended that one-to-many is more efficient and that mobile DTV and multicast are good uses for TV spectrum. CES and NAB shows showcased a lot of ATSC-MH gear and a lot of stations are deploying this gear now.
