Two months after the trafficking of analog TVs became a crime, those retailers who stocked up on analog TV in anticipation of the deadline, are going to have to put warning labels on all those analog only TVs
. While some retail locations are already clean out of analog only TVs
, others are still holding onto quite a few for all those bargain shoppers. What these labels are supposed to do is to let consumers know that these TVs aren't a bargain after all, especially if you consider that the ATSC equipped 13 inch TV at Best Buy sells for about $20 more than one without. We think this is a good idea, but we agree with the FCC chairman Michael Copps: it would have been much better if it went into effect 14 months ago when congress passed the law that will cause NTSC transmissions to cease on Feb 19th 2009.
