I have a portable analog TV which will be a door stop in 2009. Does
any place sell the new digital tv's in a portable form? You know, one
that runs on batteries in case your electricity goes out.

One thing some fancy laptop computers come with TV tuner.
And for others, the USB tuner dongles are $100.

Uh, how would that work with NO electricity which is why I asked?

On your charged-up laptop, which will run about as long as alkalines in
a battery TV. If you have gas in the car to keep that battery running,
you can sit in the car and watch. I've done that a few times, now I just
try to sleep through the outage, or if it is several days, find the
nearest hotel with power and room.

News Alert==I don't have nor never mentioned having a laptop

someone ELSE mentioned having a laptop.
