Digital TV is coming. Are you ready

TV set
Digital TV will arrive on February 17, 2009. If you have an analog TV, you will not be able to use that TV unless you buy a digital to analog converter. The antenna will make a difference also, but most campers have a crankup antenna that is capable of receiving digital TV signals. If you are using a satallite system, you don’t have to worry as you are already in the digital world. That also applies to those who have a cable connection at a campsite or at home.

For further information on the digital transition, read the article Digital TV is Coming – Are You and Your Camper Ready? You can also visit the Federal Communications Commission website on digital TV transition. It really is painless and fairly simple. The only problem is that people will be forced to, at a minimun, buy a converter that cost between $40.00 to $50.00. However, there is a government program to help people buy the converters.
