A new countdown to DTV

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

The switch to digital TV within the US will happen in less than three weeks. However, according to the Government run DTV web site, 42% of the TV broadcast market has already made the transition.

If you’re reading this page via the Internet, I’m guessing you’ve already made your DTV switch. However, just in case I’m wrong, or you have family or friends who don’t understand the DTV switch, the FCC has contracted with vendors to provide DTV support centers and events, which can be located in this DTV help center map. There are also DTV converter box coupons still available, though it’s probably too late to get the coupon before the conversion.

As for antennas, based on my own experience, I recommend the Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna. Once I installed it, I was able to pick up an additional 5 channels, and I’ve had a much more consistent signal from all the channels. It’s one of the larger indoor antennas, but the price is good (I purchased at Amazon, where it’s currently listed for $36.85), as is the performance.
