Digital Television Transition Coming February 17, 2009

Analog to Digital
Are You Ready?

With the DTV {Digital Television} Transition looming in the not too distant future, you may want to look to your local Cable TV provider to come to your rescue. If you already have Cable TV, you shouldn't have anything to worry about when the federally mandated change from analog to digital occurs February 17, 2009. Your Cable provider already has the technology to handle the digital television transition.

Besides digital cable television, many cable TV providers have bundled services that include HDTV {high-definition TV}, cable high-speed internet, cable telephone service, VOD {video on demand} and has the reliability far beyond that of satellite TV! With the DTV transition coming soon, cable TV is a great option all consumers should seriously consider before the DTV transition.

With the upcoming digital TV transition, comes many unanswered questions. Only full power broadcasters are required to make the change from analog to digital broadcast, however there are still hundreds of TV stations in the U.S. that are authorized to broadcast at lower power, {LPTV stations} because of the cost, these LPTV stations were exempt from the digital transition by Congress.

LPTV stations are very important for all of our local community news. PEG channels or "public, educational and government" PEG channels provide our local information on school closings, local government, weather emergencies, community events, etc. Your local PEG channels and the digital transition should not be a problem with cable TV, whether PEG channels are in digital or analog? Cable TV has you covered.
