Digital TV Equipment Overview
The switchover to digital TV from analogue was complete by the end of 2012. To watch TV in the UK, you need a digital system to receive Sky TV, Freesat satellite TV or Freeview terrestrial TV. A Sky box, Freesat box or Freeview receiver will be required for every room in which you want to watch TV and each house will require a digital satellite dish or TV aerial compatible with the digital TV service that you have chosen. Some provision has been made for the elderly and needy to have one TV per household converted to Freeview digital TV.
What Are The Benefits Of Digital TV?
The benefits of digital TV are manifold. The ability to broadcast many more channels in the same ‘air-space’ that analogue used and an improvement in the average picture quality are the main two. High Definition TV (HDTV) and Interactive TV are also available and becoming increasingly popular as HDTV screens become cheaper. Why not take advantage of the services offered by Sky TV, Freeview or Freesat digital TV as soon as you can?
