Best route for DTV is to use an outside antenna. Lots of information at the antennasdirect website.
Don't get suckered by the "digital" splashed on ads or cartons, the old style antenna works just fine with digital TVs. The antenna only captures the signal and doesn't care if it is analog, ham, or digital, it is the receiver's job to take what it needs.
I am approx. 45 miles from station towers to the east and west, an old style antenna in the attic works just fine with a signal splitter to various rooms. That said, the signal is line-of-sight so what you do will depend on your location. Your antenna needs to be high enough to receive over the nearby hills and neighboring buildings.
I don't think so. They work well even without any antenna.
You will need antenna to catch digital signals. other wise you will not able to get good picture quality.
No, to go digital we don't require any antenna's. because sun might be setting on analoigue broadcasting.
I realize this is an old thread and the most recent reply comes form Australia, but you do need an antenna to receive the over the air TV signal, you just don't need to buy a new antenna, your old one will work just fine.
I just bought a new Vizeo ultra high definition TV. The initial scan for over the air digital signals found about 30 stations, even without any antenna at all! I live about 15 miles from the transmitters west of downtown Portland, Oregon and I can actually see them from my house. Even channel two, which usually has the most trouble with weak signals, is coming in 5X! The picture is a good as that from my satelite connection. Cable and satelite companies often compress a digital signal in able to send more data over their limited bandwidth. Over the air stations do not have to compress their signals.
I don't think so. For more details you can contact your local operators.
