Clarifying Digital TV Conversion

There is still a lot of confusion around digital television, and whether TV owners need to get a converter box or not.

To help clarify – for those currently connected to:

Cable or Satellite – or other paid services will not be affected by this change. However, as every cable company is different, contact your provider to confirm that you will not be affected.

Over-The-Air – using roof top antennas or rabbit-ears – you WILL be affected. Check your TV manual to see if your TV has a built-in digital tuner. If it does, you are okay. If not, you will need a digital [DTV] converter box.

Note – the converter boxes used for OTA are NOT the same as those that may be needed for Cable.
