Trying to figure out H-D-T-V
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

UNDATED The Federal Communications Commission is trying to make the search for a high-definition television a lot easier.

There are so many different names and models, it's hard to figure out what kind of products are out there.

Congress set a target of December 2006 for broadcasters to shift from analog transmissions to digital. The date is widely expected to slip because only a small slice of the population actually has digital televisions.

The F-C-C's Web site has a shopper's guide, lists the frequently asked questions about H-D-T-V and contains a glossary of terms used in relation to high-definition television.

There is also a section that lets you find out what high-definition programming is available where you live. All you have to do is enter your ZIP code.
