Your TV Receives Signals Over-the-Air Using an Outdoor Antenna or "Rabbit Ears"
You may be affected by the transition to over-the-air digital television. Many stations have stopped broadcasting over-the-air in analog and have switched to digital. Digital signals provide better picture and sound and take up less airwave space. Some stations may have simply moved to another analog channel and some may have chosen to discontinue their broadcasting activities in your area.
It is important that you find out if your local stations have changed.
If your television is equipped with a digital tuner, you will be able to continue viewing local stations that have switched to digital. The majority of television antennas that were used for watching analog signals will continue to work with digital signals. If your television does not have a built-in digital tuner or if any of your local stations are no longer broadcasting over-the-air, you have options.
