Digital TV For Beginners

by Kim on June 7, 2013

The digital switchover is arguably the biggest since the advent of color television. Most of the developed nations such as the US, Canada and the UK have already switched to digital TV signal transmission. Others are still expected to follow suit. Millions of people around the world want to get the best kind of entertainment in their homes, they want to enjoy the best channels from across the globe and most importantly, receive digital crisp clear pictures on their sets. That is why they are now considering digital TV.

There are plenty of benefits that come with digital TV including receiving many channels and even special interactive features for the disabled. Therefore, digital TV is more user-friendly than the old analog transmission systems. Since 2012, all digital TV signals in the United Kingdom have been digital.

How does digital TV work?

With digital transmission, pictures and sound are converted into a digital format and then compressed. This means that the content being transmitted takes less space than the case was in the previous analog systems. This therefore allows more channels to be sent through the same transmission links.

Digital signals can be picked up by satellite dishes, aerials, or through cables. The signals are then decoded and then converted to sound and pictures through the use of a set-top box or decoder that is built into your TV set. The second form of transmission of digital TV signals is referred to as integrated digital television or iDTV.

Why adopt digital TV?

Just like I had stated before, television in various parts of the world is switching from analog to digital. This therefore means, if you don’t adjust your TV set to receive digital transmission signals, you might not enjoy watching TV in the coming days. The digital switchover is taking place around the globe so you better be wary and switch to digital transmission.

Digital TV offers you more choice

Perhaps this is the major reason why millions of people around the world are switching to digital television. With digital ability, you will get more channels from even global public broadcasters. Digital TV also comes with the benefits of interactivity; on-screen television listings and wide screen picture enablement. Therefore depending on the manner in which you want to receive your signals, you might get a diverse range of information and interactive services.

Digital TV is clearer

Digital TV picture quality is much higher than that of analog TV. That is why digital is seen as being more interactive. This should give you more reason to start switching over today.
