Television switches to digital

As some of you might know, the United States' government has mandated that, by February 17th, 2009, all TV stations must broadcast in digital.

Here is a link from everyone's friend, the FCC. Supposedly, the switch will allow for "improved picture and sound quality and additional channels."

So, what do you guys think about this? Why would the government mandate this? What could they possibly gain? I'll go off on a branch and, in the nature of my cynical side, say that better quality = more people watching TV, which means less people worrying about other issues (effectively using TV as a means of escaping their life).

Also, is this happening in any other countries, other than the US, or is this just another reason to disapprove of Congress?
