Digital television signals will be a mandate starting February 16, 2009. All analog television broadcast signals will cease after February 16, 2009. All television stations must broadcast with digital signals. Analog television sets will NOT be able to pick up the digital signals. Those sets must be fitted with a DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) device in order for digital television signals to be received by your analog television set. TV stations are going to the digital signal to match the advances in technology and to bring you, the customer, a better viewing experience.
The Federal Government has a program to make the conversion process a little easier on the wallet. If you have not already done so, you can get a coupon to help purchase a converter.
Yours in the digital age,
