Over the Air Digital Television
Did you know that all Canadian local television stations will convert from analog broadcast signal to digital signal by August 31, 2011?
Shaw Direct already offers 100% digital service, meaning there is absolutely no impact to Shaw Direct clients. One of the main reasons for switching to digital television is the need for more spectrum, commonly referred to as frequencies or airwaves.
Spectrum is used for wireless telephone services, emergency communications, etc. Digital signals use less airwave space than analog signals. Digital technology also provides better picture and sound. If you receive local over-the-air TV stations using an outdoor antenna or “rabbit ears” for free, this change to digital may affect you.
Over-the-air (OTA) broadcasters will convert to digital and you will need a digital ready television or converter. For more info, visit www.digitaltv.gc.ca.
Since Shaw Direct offer you the possibility to get HD and regular content for $0 or nearly $0, there's never been a better time to switch!
