Over the Air DTV
What is Digital Television (DTV)?
DTV, also known as Digital Television or High Definition TV (HDTV), is a mandated conversion for all television broadcasters in the United States. Congress made February 17, 2009, the final date to end all over-the-air analog broadcasts. All over-the-air viewers must have a digital television set or converter box in order to watch television.
What is Over-The-Air (OTA) Programming?
Over-the-air refers to programming broadcasts via public airwaves. This means any program you currently watch by means of an antenna, as opposed to a cable system or satellite dish). This may include affiliates of ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, WB, PBS and independent local broadcasters. Some programming is only offered over the air.
What Do I Need To Receive AAT TV Programming on DTV?
All you need is a digital television / HD set with a built-in ATSC tuner. For older/analog television sets, an ATSC digital-to-analog set-top converter box is required. Similarly both digital and analog TV sets need an external antenna to receive programming.
How will I know if my specific TV model is compatible?
If you purchased your analog TV before 2004, it will require the addition of a converter box to receive and display DTV signals.
Beginning in 2006, there was an increase in the number of digital-tuner equipped TVs introduced to the marketplace. These TVs will not be affected by the pending changes.
Any set sold under the classifications “HD-Ready” or “HDTV Monitor” does not include a built-in ATSC tuner to receive digital TV signals. These sets require the addition of an HD source (ATSC over-the-air receiver with antenna, or a cable or satellite receiver that is capable of high-definition output) to deliver a true HDTV picture.
Sets sold as “EDTV” or “SDTV” may have the capacity to receive HDTV signals, but can only display such content at a reduced resolution. Recently, the FCC begun requiring, on a phased-in basis, that larger TVs with analog tuners also be marketed with built-in or separate ATSC tuners. Smaller TVs will follow in later phases. The newer the TV is, the less chance your TV will not be affected.
