Falling in Love with High Definition TV

ConnectMyCable.com offers benefits of having an HD television.

ConnectMyCable.com, an online marketplace that helps customers nationwide set up their television service, counts the reasons to love high-definition television (HDTV) service.

The top reasons to love thy HDTV:

  •     Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow -- As of February 17, 2009 the analog television form will cease to exist and high definition transmissions will takes its place. Thus, folks in the know should start the transition to HD format now, lest they have a love/hate relationship later.
  •     Bigger and Stronger -- The HD format uses about the same bandwidth as analog signals but transmits more than six times the information, leading to a huge improvement in sound and quality. It also leaves room for more information to be transferred using the same bandwidth. For example, featured programs from a network would be seen on channel 13.1 while simultaneously that network could broadcast their weather on 13.2.
  •     The Look -- HDTV service has high resolution, crystal-clear picture quality with a wide-screen format. The sharpness of the HD picture comes from having more pixels than the analog format.
  •     The Sound -- HD gives each program a rich CD-like quality compared to that of a DVD.

By now HDTV should sound like a rather tempting option to consider. Cable companies are regularly adding more HD programming and some local networks have begun broadcasting their signals in HD as well as still in analog.

In order to view those local HD channels, people need to have an HD television set or a converter box. For those out there that are too attached to their analog TV sets, purchasing a converter is affordable with a $40 coupon from The National Telecommunications and Information Administration.
