I Get A Bit of It Now

I could not understand remotely why the CRTC was grilling the CBC on the costs of the transition to digital this morning. But the questioning of Miss (Ms?) Molnar to Mr Bobic of Bell has explained to to me.
We who are hooked up into satellite or cable service will not notice the day that analogue transmission dies. Those who rely on over-the-air TV will.
Now there is no reason why the commissioners should be bugging the cable and satellite providers about this, except that the local broadcasters want to mitigate their own costs in getting to the future by dumping them on the former. And the commissioners seem halfway sympathetic!
What the hell kind of silly little country is this?
