Logic in Advertising

You know those commercials informing the panicked citizenry of these United States about the impending switch to cable-only TV in 2009? You know how the whole point of the commercial is that there will no longer be TV signals broadcast over the air, right? And if you've already got cable TV or satellite, you won't even notice the change?

So... why do they run those adverts on cable-only channels?

To instill FEAR in the hearts of cable TV customers so they will go out and buy a new cable TV upgrade, why else?
