View Full Version : Where the first area in the nation switching from Analog to Digital

at noon today! All the TV stations in the Wilmington area will permanently switch from Analog to Digital... I just wonder will the signal be dependent on the weather like satellites? I guess we will see in a few hours. :eek:

Same stuff going on in this part off the world.

We only have analog until the end of the month.:)

The rest of the nation isn't switching until Feb '09. We are the test area.

Excuse my ignorance, but what exactly will be the difference?

you will no longer be able to view tv with just the regular rabbit ears. You have to buy a converter or you tv will need a digital tuner to work.

If your tv is hooked up to cable or satellite then there is no change for you.

Except it seems that like satellite the weather really affects your reception.... but i'm just hoping it's the tv stations and not the weather. We have a little tv in the kitchen and the pixelization is annoying.
