Guide to DTV

TV Addict

Digital television is broadcasting technology that promotes enhanced video and sound quality. U.S. broadcasters switched completely from analog to digital in 2009, while Canadian broadcasters will complete the switch in 2011. If you live in a region that only offers DTV and you have an analog television set, you will be unable to view broadcasts unless you install a converter.

The articles in this guide will show you how to choose the best converter box to buy and how to install it once you do, no matter what else is hooked up to your set. If you are having trouble with reception or other DTV issues, you can find help in our troubleshooting articles as well.
