What should I know about digital over-the-air television?
Digital television is a new technology for the broadcasting of television signals. DTV signals are delivered to your television set in a stream of bits, whereas analog signals are transmitted by continuously varying radio waves. Compared to analog broadcasting, transmitting digital television signals is more effective and provides sharper picture, improved sound, and additional features to television viewers.
