Digital TV Transition 2009 Consumer Information

Do you know what happened on June 12, 2009? Most TV stations began broadcasting a digital signal and cut their analog transmitters off.

The FCC mandated the change because analog television is not nearly as efficient as a digital signal. Not only is it possible to transmit a much better television picture and better sound, but the switch will free up the limited analog resources for public safety uses and new wireless services.

WHAT YOU NEED TO WATCH TV AFTER THE TRANSITION

If you have a television set with an analog tuner, you will need to do ONE of the following:

  • connect to cable or satellite service OR
  • get an analog-to-digital converter box OR
  • purchase a new set with a built-in digital tuner

If you already have a television set with a digital tuner, you are already set.
