Will TV going Digital today have any impact on Internet traffic?

 12:50 pm on Jun 12, 2009 (gmt 0)

Just a thought while listening to the radio while driving to work:

"Starting today TV's are going digital. No more antenna TV's."

At first I thought great, people will spend less time watching television until they upgrade their TV's and will probably surf the internet.

But then I thought the ones who still have those rabbit-ears-old-TV-antennas probably dont have computers or high speed internet.

So I guess traffic remains the same...

the number i heard was <3 million so that's approximately 1% of the population.
(maybe that number was households and not people.)
and as you mentioned a small subset of those would be considered net savvy and/or have high speed access to satisfactorily replace their video demand.

I can't imagine it will make any significant difference either way.
