The Times today tells us that the government plans to force all households in Britain to switch from analog to digital TV. But certain people need not fear, as the government plans to pick up the cost for certain classes of people.
Yes, the Government has promised to pay for new boxes for the over-75s, the blind and the disabled.
It seems odd enough to me that the government is in a position to tell people what kind of TV they are going to watch. But it seems doubly strange that it plans on picking up the tab for people who can't even watch TV.
