It seems that the conversion to HD fee of $10,000 (discussed on this
list as a cost roadblock to entry into the HD market) is set to go to
$15,000 in July and $25,000 in July of '08. They are offering stations
the ability to "lock in" the $10,000 rate for all future acquisition.
But they have to "Call Before Midnight Tonight" (tongue-in-cheek).
Operators are standing by!
Seems that $25,000 would be a HUGE obstacle for many stations.
