A lot of people bought analog TVs within 3 years of the digital rollout. I promise you, no TV manufacturer gave them their money back or a discount on a new TV. The government offered a discount on a converter box... that's it. This is how technology works. Some people haven't been touched by this (*waves*) some people have. Expecting that a 200-300 dollars piece of technology will support all standards forever is naivety at the best and a gross case of the "gimmes" at the worst. I bought a Sprint cell phone that was supposedly 4G and before 4G came to my town, they canceled the entire WiMax rollout and switched to LTE. The 4G feature of my phone never happened. They had no obligation, moral, ethical or economic, to do anything about that. Anyone buy a PS3 in the last 3 years? Guess what? PS4 games don't run on it. Is that planned obsolescence? It literally is. If you don't like these kinds of situations, I suggest you don't ever buy any technology ever.
