What is digital television (DTV)?

Digital Television (DTV) is a new type of broadcasting technology that offers lots of advantages over analog television, starting with better picture and sound quality. It also allows stations to telecast more programming using less of the broadcast spectrum.
With DTV, a broadcaster can provide several program channels using the same amount of bandwidth as one traditional analog channel—a process called multicasting. Instead of just having channel 7, for example, you now have channel 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3, each offering different programming. Cool, huh? In fact, many stations have already started broadcasting this way. So with the right equipment, you can get a clearer picture and multicast channels today in areas where they're available.* To watch these additional channels, you'll just need an antenna and a TV set with a built-in DTV tuner or converter box.
