NTSC was known as "Never Twice the Same Color"
or alternately, "No Television System Cheaper"
Now we need to figure out what ATSC should be called.
I started a thread of ATSC acronym jokes over on Craig
Birkmaier's OpenDTV list, and here are the results:
A Table of Silly Compromises
A Temporary Stand-in for COFDM
A Totally Stupid Concept
A Treasure for Snell's Converters
A TV? Spend Cash
Abolish Those Sub-Carriers
Absent Telecines Switchers & Cameras
Absent Transmitters Switchers & Cameras
Accumulation of Television Systems Comedy
Addled Testament to Superficial Consensus
Advanced Technologists Still Crying
Advanced Television Says Congress
Advanced Television Specified for Computers
Advanced Television Systems Committee
Advantages To Specific Companies
Aggressive Terrestrial Screws Cable
Alex Trebek Sounds Clearer
All Television Systems Cheaper
All the Time Stuff Changes
All These Standards Conflict
All This for Sit-Coms?
All This Shit Costs
All This'll Scare Consumers
All Trouble for Satellite & Cable
All Trouble Strife & Confusion
Alliance for Terrestrial Spectrum Control
Almost The Same Color
Almost There, Still Changing
Always Take the Second Choice
Always The Same Color
Always Too Severely Compressed
Always Truncated by Seven-o-nine Colorimetry
Am Tired of System Confusion
America Trades Spectrum for Cash
America's Television Systems Collide
American Television System Cacophony
Amish of Television Sectarian Constituencies, the
Anathema To Software Companies
Another Totally Silly Committee?
Anyone Think Sixpack Cares?
Anyone Tried Selling Commercials?
Anyone Tried Switching Channels?
Anything That Satisfies Congress.
Anything That Sony Commands
Anything To Second-guess Congress
Anything To Stifle Computers
Assbackwards Technology Stupefies Congress
Avoid Taking Sides Completely
Aw, Tough Shit for Cable
Aw, Tough Shit for Compatibility
Aw, Tough Shit for Composition
Aw, Tough Shit for Computers
Aw, Tough Shit for Consumers
