Please clarify the digital TV (DTV) transition in 2009
by Lee Koo (ADMIN) - 5/2/08 11:18 AM
I'd like the straight scoop on what happens to TV reception next year. Specifically, will my several analog TVs that are connected directly to cable still function? Or will I need a converter box on each of them? TV store salesmen say I will need a box on each. But I understood that the cable companies would continue to send both analog and digital signals over the cable. Only the 'over-the-airwaves broadcasting' would be free of analog signals so those receiving TV via antenna will need a box on each analog TV. Is that correct? Simple question, but I had to get the simple answer. Either I'm OK as is, or I need a bunch of boxes. If you can give me clear and definitive answer, that would be much appreciated! Thank you very much.
