Digital TV

Interest in Digital Television signals has increased significantly in recent days and as a result, we were inspired to carry a few products for over-the-air reception.

The cutoff date for analog television in the USA means that Canadians who have relied on over-the-air signals from our friends across the border will either need an ATSC (digital) tuner in their TV or they will need a converter box to continue to receive their favourite stations.

The new digital signals look great! Some programming is transmitted in High Definition too. (you won't see HD quality on your old TV but it will look pretty good.) If you have a new TV with a built-in ATSC tuner, why not hook up your old TV antenna or even a set of "rabbit ears" and see for yourself. You might be impressed engough to say goodbye to your cable or satellite provider!

For more info on these FREE digital over-the-air signals, click HERE.

Below are a couple of products we are now stocking.

ATSC TV converter
