Question --> Digital TV change ... no more tv in my car?

I was planning on putting one of those TV receiver things for my car lcd screen in the next couple of weeks- but are they going to work once all the signal become digital? (is it like home tv's, that now you cant get signal with little rabbit antennas?)

Because I really wanted TV in my car

unfortunately yes

Yes (for now anyways)

There are a few mobile TV receivers on the market but the problem is really the antenna. The first stage digital signal can not reliably be received by a moving antenna. Hold on for a while Mobile DTV is being tested and hopefully on its way soon.
We may soon all have free TV built into our cell phones.

Free Cell Phone TV... lmao.

I get free TV on the internet, and I get internet no matter where I am, as long as I can get cellular service.

Yet, for some reason, I'm still paying for cable.

What internet service do you use? And does it cost?

I have an iphone so I could do that and hook it up to my car... but how...

Oh, I have BlueRidge cable internet at home, but I can link my older cell phone to my computer if I want to take it with me.

If you have wireless internet capability, and you're near a city, you'll almost always have wireless signal somewhere within range, because of hotels/libraries/McD's, etc.

I just usually go to places like Hulu.com or IceFilms.info to watch whatever I wanna watch.
