HDTV Antenna Or The Converter Box?

Apr 3, 2008
With the growing popularity of HDTV, more and more viewers are changing to high definition television. And to keep up with this, broadcasters are at a faster rate than ever making high def programs.

Since there's a deadline of Feb 17, 2009 for all broadcasters to shift to HD, the popularity of this fashion of shifting has grown. Families stuck with their old television sets that are not compatible with this new technology, have to get themselves a digital-to-analog converter or acquire an high definition antenna!

If you choose on getting a HD television, then it is advisable that you do considerable research to know what exactly is acquirable in the market and what you need to discover out about hd. Once you have purchased your set, you will need to decide a cable provider that offers you digital cable service and that Hi def comes part of their package.

Be conscious though that if you select a Cable/Dish provider to get high def you may be charged more for your local stations. The average fee for receiving your local hd stations via your provider is around $10/month over and above your regular statement.

The simplest and cheapest way (free) of receiving high definition delivered to your home is via an antenna. That's right , just the initial cost of an hdtv antenna will be all that is spent to acquire your hd signals! The choices you have for an HD television are unimagined. You have plasma, LCD (liquid crystal display), DLP (digital light processing) or LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon), all of which are types of monitors.

Don't forget the type of displays also...rear projection, front projection and flat screen will be choices you'll see when shopping for a tv. Numerous HDTV consumers like the wall display monitor, be it the plasma or the LCD.

But be prepared, you will pay a price for these high definition sets, particularly the bigger screens of 55". If you are looking for something less pricy and not willing to compromise on the calibre, then look to LCD displays that are 42 inches or less in size.

In the end everyone across the country will eventually have to make the shift to HDTV! Either by choosing to get the high def signals via their Cable/Dish company or as likely most of the 30+ million consumers with the old-fashion type analog antenna will select to get up on their roofs and exchange it out for the fresh designed HDTV antenna.
