|The Transition to Digital Television|
A historic day in television broadcasting happened on June 12, 2009, when the pictures you receive in your home were fully converted from analog to digital signals. Experts say this represents a great advance in the quality of television pictures and frees up precious analog space for public safety and other important communications uses.
Households that have been receiving free over-the-air television signals using traditional antennas need either a new set equipped to receive DTV or a converter box that will allow their old televisions to receive the new signals.
The Federal Communications Commission has set up a website to answer questions and provide assistance with transition to DTV. You can visit this website at www.dtv.gov.
