Well paying more is always a given, but satellite is DTV already & with a setop box like mine you get the HD too. Again nobody needs a DTV or HDTV they only need a tuner that will decode the signals & many of them work for old analog TV's like mine. I'm sure there will be some $50 models the closer we get to the change over.
It's not like everyone has to go out buy a new TV and throw the old one in the dumpster.
The big change is the OTA (over the airwaves) channels where the analog signal will go away.
