So, who likes Sponge Bob? Anyone like Fairly Odd Parents? How about the Simpsons? Watch out! Your screen is going to go fuzzy unless you get DTV. If you want to see Sponge Bob, Timmy, and Bart in complete fuzziness, donŐt read my report. Otherwise, I am going to teach you about DTV such as what is DTV, history of DTV, and how DTV works.
What is DTV?
What country was DTV made?
According to Rick Verbal with the US DTV transition coming up in less than a year we've given you a number of updates about the resulting public confusion. Anyone who's followed that saga in the last several months won't be surprised to hear that the UK seems to have the same problems.
P.S. itŐs saying UK and USA is both are making DTV.
According to Digital FQ if you still watch TV on a conventional set with an antenna, well, bad news. Your TV will go dark in 2009, unless you take action.
History of DTV
According to answer.com the inventorŐs name was John Logie Baird invented TV in January 26, 1926 (about 70 years ago) that led to DTV and HDTV. (This is the time line, TV, HDTV, and DTV.)
According to answer.com the Americans will tell you it was Philo Taylor Farnsworth (what a name!). The Russians and RCA will tell you it was Vladimir Zworykin. Like all complex devices, the television has many contributing inventors. Which means, Philo Taylor Farnsworth invented TV, which led to DTV.
How DTV works
DTV refers to broadcast digital TV, which you will need since the "old" broadcasts will cease shortly. Except for the one-time charge of an adapter, broadcast remains free (except for having to watch commercials!)
According to FCC.GOV after your full power stations transition to only digital, you will be able to receive and view over-the-air digital programming with an analog TV only by purchasing a digital-to-analog set-top converter box. All U.S. households are able to request up to two coupons, worth $40 each, to be used toward the future purchase of eligible digital-to-analog converter boxes. Eligible converter boxes are for the conversion of over-the-air digital television signals, and therefore are not intended for analog TVs connected to a paid provider such as cable or satellite TV service.
So now you know everything I taught you about DTV. But you better still keep on reaching if you want to learn more about DTV.
