Television Is Changing, Make Sure You're In The Picture

Television Is Changing, Make Sure You're In The Picturethink digital
Television is changing. It is going completely digital, bringing us all more choice, better services and better quality.

You may already have digital - from Sky, Freeview, ntl: or Telewest Broadband. But in the future every TV set and video recorder in your house will need to cope with digital signals. So, if you are buying a new TV or video recorder today, you need to think about your digital choices.

There are many ways to get digital television and you will need to decide the best option for you.

If you are buying a new TV today this is what you need to know:
Any analogue TV can be used with a set top box to receive digital TV signals. For Freeview and digital cable, you will need to check you are in a coverage area. For Freeview, you may also need a new aerial. The TV should ideally have a "scart" socket to plug the box into.

An integrated digital TV (iDTV) already has a digital receiver inside it, giving access to Freeview's free digital terrestrial TV services - if you are in the coverage area. To receive any other digital channels you will need to use a set top box (for digital cable or digital satellite) or a viewing card (for Top Up TV). Some iDTVs also need a separate "CAM" adaptor to use Top Up TV.
