A year from now the analog signal gets shut off. Is this going to effect you?

Nope, I can't wait for this to happen. Having nice TV's that can handle the digital signals makes me happy that all stations will have to conform to the new format.

I only have over the air TV so this affects me. From what I've seen you can get a digital tuner for $60 but also get a $40 rebate. I don't mind it since they broadcast more channels via digital so I'll actually get more programming.

Over the air analog signals. If you have any TVs that use an antenna they probably won't work at this time next year unless their newer and use the digital signals. You'll have to get a box that can receive the digital over the air signals to make your TV work. If you use cable or sat you won't be affected.

I've got an analogy TV at the moment but I plan on upgrading soon any way so it won't affect me when it happens.

Namaste

If you have a cable box or Dish you also won't have to worry.
