Digital switch will be messy

"The transition will be messy," said Robert McDowell, member of the FCC.

Yeah, tell me about it. Everytime I try to watch the digital channel of Fox on my nice television, it is like watching a scratched DVD. The picture blurs. The audio is choppy.

This is what we'll be left with. For some reason, PBS digital comes through loud and clear. Like public officials are the people I want to see in High Definition.

Add to that the fact that people are confused as to whether or not they are covered under the switch. People don't know what to do to prepare. Nationally broadcasted television will no longer be available to them.
