How the políticos screwed DVB-T in Spain

Check out this good short piece by Pedro Soria-Rodriguez on how for party political ends Spanish national and regional government have ensured that DVB-T/TDT will not increase choice for consumers. This is not a direct issue for me–I only see the telly in Spain in bars (the same applies in France and the UK)–but it’s good to know what’s going on in that box upstairs.

  1. I dunno, Trebly. Admittedly, the programming on TDT, to the extent that it differs from analog, is truly and awfully amazing – undercutting my own low expectations by a wide margin. But the problem is the medium itself. More ‘choice’ just gives you different means to arrive at lowest common denominator.
