Court rules on digital TV

A federal appeals court has sided with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), upholding a ruling that all television tuners larger than 13″ must have digital tuners by July 2007. The court noted the catch-22 — consumers aren’t buying digital TVs because of the paucity of digital programming; programmers cite lack of receivers as a reason for not creating content.
