How is Digital Television different from "regular television"?

Digital TV (DTV) is a new television system that provides over-the-air digital and high definition (HDTV) programming. Instead of a traditional analog signal, video signals are created and transmitted as digital information with no resulting loss in clarity or detail. Consequently, your DTV picture at home is delivered with stunning detail and CD quality sound.

How can I see KNXV-DT?

KNXV-DT, available on digital Channel 15.1, is a free, over-the-air broadcast. There is no need for a cable service or satellite dish. All you need is an HDTV television or a digital tuner and a TV antennae, the same kind you've used for your old analog signal. You can check with your local TV retailer for more advanced "smart" over-the-air antennas as well. Again, this is a free service. ABC15's hi-definition transmitter is located on South Mountain.

What exactly do I need in order to receive HDTV?

For free reception, you'll need an antenna, and an HDTV compatible television set or projector with built-in digital tuner. If the tuner is not built-in, you'll need to purchase a separate set-top digital tuner box. Ask your local electronics retailers about availability. Some receivers are "bundled" with cable or satellite services as well. Depending on your location, you may need either a small set-top antennae or a larger unit installed outside. Regarding signal strength, be aware that an HDTV signal is an "all-on or all-off" signal. It doesn't get weaker or stronger as you tune it in; either it's all there…or not there at all, depending on distance and signal strength.
