BDM100 Article03

The article I read was entitled Abandon All TVs, Ye Who Enter Here which comes from the May 2008 edition of Sound and Vision magazine. The article mainly is about the switch from analog TV signals to digital signals on February 17th 2009. The article is based upon a study done on how people are informed or uninformed on the subject. The statistics show that most people are uniformed or unaware of the change. Which they say could lead to panic when people turn on their TVs and get nothing but static. The change however is fairly easy to understand if given the right information. There are 3 ways basically to make sure you are ready for the change. The first is if you bought a TV within the last year you most likely don’t have anything to worry about. But make sure your TV has an HD tuner. If you have cable or satellite TV your already fine because your cable provider will already provide you with the proper signal. And lastly if you are one of those people still hanging onto your first cabinet television have no fear because you can simply purchase a special converter box for the occasion. The government even has a program in which you can get vouchers to help offset the cost of the boxes.
