6/15/2007

Consumer Reports, in the article "How to survive the digital TV transition" provides the standard warning that sets without DTV tuners will not work with an off-air TV antenna after Feb. 17, 2009. The article advises readers that that they can purchase a digital converter box or a new VCR, DVD recorder, or digital hard disk recorder that includes a DTV tuner and use it to convert the DTV signal to analog for an older receiver or display.

The article also includes a section titled, "Antennas: Your Link to Free DTV." Readers are told that the impending transition to digital "has put a whole new spin" on off-air reception. They are told that they'll be getting high-quality pictures and sound, and that the possibility of additional programming via "subchannels" is part of the new digital off-air delivery.   Print Page
