Watch Out For Digital TV

January 2011

Why do we need digital television and radio? The basic answer is vastly improved picture and sound quality and the ability to use all the screen space offered by widescreen television sets. It’s a worldwide advance and although at the moment Australia broadcasts in both digital and analog signals, the push is on to go completely digital. Progressively, for the next three years, analog TV signals will be switched off and unless you have a set capable of receiving digital, you will have to upgrade to one with an in-built digital tuner or invest in a digital set-top box.
