Cable radio goes bye-bye


The CRTC has decided nobody’s listening to cable radio (which is more or less right) and they’re going to ditch it in favor of more room on the spectrum for HDTV and digital channels. On the surface, that sounds alright to me, but if the cable companies employ their usual practices, that’ll probably mean a whole lotta compressed, artifact-laden soup on the standard definition channels.

But I’ll let Nordic Fury vent about image quality in the comments. His golden eyes and ears are scarred every time he turns on his television. 🙂
