Many nations primarily in Europe are experiencing changes in the country's television broadcasting signal right now. The trend is to digitalize the old fashioned analog television signal and this conversion is concerning several of television users who will have to keep up to date to keep on watching television. The analog transmission was broadcast in a single frequency while the new digital platform is built on a discrete terrestrial technology allowing high quality (high definition) audio and pictures. The new DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) signal is broadcast in either a MPEG2 or MPEG4 format with MPEG4 is the newest.

A transformation in broadcasting signal, nontheless, can't be easily completed. It involve a lot of physical and technical modifications on the back end, but the most comprehensive effect actually concerns the television audience who will have to take action to see the digital television.

This article will assist you figure out if you are one of those that will have to react on the changes and which options there are available.

The first question is, who is affected?

-          Those making use of an outdated antenna.

If you fall into that category, here is what you can (have to) do to adjust your TV signal and prepare yourself for a TV revolution:

1.       Go buy a satellite package! This is maybe one of the most radical actions you can take, but might also be the best. When you buy a satellite antenna you are no longer reliant on any transmission changes, in fact, you will not ever agin have to be bothered with it. A satellite signal is something very different and independent so if the state's broadcasting organization decides to update its platform in the nearest future you will not be affected. Shifting to a satellite, also gives you a wider selection of channels, where you can choose from a larger collection of available channels.

2.       Changing to a cable dependent TV network. Though this alternative very often is limited to people who is housed in larger building blocks with predecided solutions. This alternative would resolve your problem.

3.       Fibernet. This may not be an option for the majority, but indeed a splendid alternative.

4.       Broadband. make use of your broadband internet connection as the television broadcasting source. This system is digital to its core and it is as a matter of fact possible to use it on your television.

5.       Acquire a new flat screen TV. Most of the new televisions have internal digital TV boxes; the only concern you have to be aware of is if they are MPEG4 compatible. If they simply support MPEG2 you can end up having to upgrade again later on with an external converter.

6.       Internet TV. It is something many are unaware of, but you can follow hundreds of TV channels on the net? A lot of large TV companies also publish live on the internet.

7.       Quit the television! This might not be the preferred choice for the majority of TV audience, but is included here to display the importance of the matter. If you do not act you WILL lose your television signal. It is not like in the old days when a limited signal meant fyzzy images, the digital times are merciless, it is all or nothing.

8.       Buy a DVB T Tuner. This might be the natural solution for many in many states. A DVB T Tuner also called a Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial is an external TV signal converter, allowing out dated televisions to display HD pictures. It does not need any large antenna or other expensive gear, the DVB T tuner is a small box you plug in to and place besides your television and you are all set. This is therefore the most cost efficient option for a majority of people. The only disadvantage is that you will need one DVB T tuner per television in your family.

We hope you could use the info given and that you are now better suited to take a well informed decision. The only thing left for you to do is to act and do something about this minor problem before you are met with a black display.
