Digital TV is a relatively new broadcasting format. In 2009, all television stations throughout the United States were required to switch to the digital format. Consequently, all new televisions including those made by Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, and Toshiba, now have a digital tuner, rather than an analog tuner. Businesses that have televisions made prior to 2009 can still receive the digital signal. However, a digital-to-analog converter box must be installed, and the television must be equipped with either a rooftop or indoor antenna. A monthly subscription must also be purchased with a satellite or cable company to receive the digital signal.
The Federal Communications Commission required the digital TV transition. Television stations can offer improved sound and pictures in high definition to their customers as well as an expanded list of channels using digital TV. Because it is a more advanced technology than analog, stations have the option to air several standard definition programs at the same time. In addition, services like interactive video are possible with digital technology.
Digital TV can be affected by weather, trees and shrubs, and the location of the antenna. If the signal strength continues to be low, move and adjust the antenna, scan the channels on the TV, or purchase a signal booster.
