Digital Television (DTV) Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 I was watching TV last Saturday with my 6-year old nephew. We saw the Clear-TV ad and he became really excited. He thought there were secret TV channels out there that you can't see without this thing. When I explained that it was for getting local stations (the same ones on basic cable) if you're too cheap or poor to have cable or satellite. He looked really disappointed and we had the following discussion: "Can you get Disney on it?" "No!" "How about Nick and Toon?" "Nope, all you can get are the local stations, you know Channel 6 and 11, the ones that do the home town news." "They suck!" "Yep." "that thing's stupid!" "Yep!" -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on August 30, 2013, 4:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Have you guys seen the ads for "Clear TV"-- a glorified TV antenna? These guys are acting like broadcast TV is a new invention that they created. I would think these ads would only work on really young people, but I only see these ads during "old people" shows. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 29, 2013, 9:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Yea, I'm always having to adjust my antenna because my converter either loses the signal or gets pixellated and unwatchable and the volume gets messed up, drives me nuts! -- Submitted By: () on November 2, 2011, 11:08 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 What a mixed bag this one is. It's true, you get it or you don't. Either it's a clean picture, a pixellated mess of the last images before the signal messed up, or a black screen with the words "NO SIGNAL". Rain? Good bye, picture. An airplane flies overhead? Hello, pixellated jumble. At least with analog the worst we'd get is a fuzzy screen. I still don't understand why they just had to get rid of analog. They say emergencies, but I fail to see how using analog for TV affected emergencies, when analog TV's been around for decades. Why couldn't they use digital for emergencies and leave analog alone if digital is so much better than analog? Wouldn't something of better quality be better suited for emergencies? The pros to DTV: You get channels you never had before. However, I have satellite TV now, so the digital converter box just collects dust. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 10, 2010, 8:59 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
5 It had something to do with clearing up space for emergencies and such. I won't fault Bush for pushing it, but some work should of been done before making it final. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on July 9, 2010, 10:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I bought an actual DTV in anticipation of the takeover. During the interim when we had both analog and digital it worked fine. When the actual switchover occurred-- suddenly I had no channels. Zero. See the thing with digital is it's either 1 or 0. You either receive the channel in perfect picture or not at all. During the analog age I would have one or two channels you could always count on and five or six others that were usually watchable. Now, nothing. They say TV ratings have been down these last couple years and I think DTV is to blame. I don't know why Bush insisted on a complete switchover; everything was fine when we had the choice between digital and analog. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 8, 2010, 6:19 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 What's not to like about DTV? You get many of the great networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, etc.) in HD/Anamorphic; you hear the channels in Dolby Digital sound; you get bonus channels (I like the Weather Radar, Universal Sports, This TV [WFAA just added this to 8-3!], and KERA World); and you get them all...FOR FREE!!!!! I can finally save myself from those stupid cable marathons and save $40+ a month!!!!! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on November 6, 2009, 9:05 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
