With less than a month left until the switch from analog to digital television broadcast, are you ready??

Anybody that subscribes to cable or digital won't have to do a thing. The company they subscribe to will do send out the signal.

If you get your television signal from an antenna and watch NBC on channel 11 you will need to hook up a converter box to your TV, then tune it to 11-1. However if your TV is new within the last four to five years, chances are you have a digital converter built in. To find out if you do, try a channel scan. If that brings up channels with dashes in between, like 11-1, your TV has one built in.

Montrose and Delta will receive a digital signal at 50-1 but will also continue to get their analog signal on channel 50.

Areas that get a signal from a transmitter will continue to do so, for the time being, regardless of the digital conversion.
