On February 17, 2009, analog television broadcasting in the United States will end. As of that date, all television stations will switch to digital TV broadcasts -- effectively making obsolete every analog television set in the country.

What do you need to do to keep watching television after the switch to digital? Do you need to buy a new television set? If so, what kind of set? Do you need a fancy high definition TV? Or is there a way to make your old TV still work with the new digital broadcasts? Should you switch to cable or satellite television? And what is digital television, anyway? These are just a few of the questions people are asking as the switch to digital TV approaches. 

All of these questions and more are answered in this short book. Don't be one of the tens of millions of people who are confused about the switch to digital TV and may lose their broadcast signal on February 17! Buy this book and take the guesswork out of the switch to digital TV!
