HDTV Antenna Business is Booming with DTV Transition, Says AntennasDirect by UCLAN[_2_]
Maybe it was a good idea to push the DTV switch date back after all. We know that millions of people weren't ready for the switch on its original February date. However, it seems like a lot of those people spent the early part of 2009 clamoring for equipment, not just the digital converter...
