Bob Cringely Welcome to Digital TV: A Cringely Crash Course

I'm Robert X. Cringely, host of PBS's introduction to the future of television, "Digital TV: A Cringely Crash Course." If you haven't heard, television is going digital, and how we watch television is going to change forever. Some people think it's a revolution, but it really isn't. It's an evolution. The history of television is short, but compared to the telephone and the computer, it hasn't kept up with the advance of technology. HDTV is going to update television and take it into the next century. Let me show you where TV came from and where it's headed.
