Is satellite TV broadcast in digital format?
All satellite TV broadcasting is transmitted in digital format. However, if you don’t have a High Definition TV (HDTV), you won’t be able to receive the quality of picture and sound that’s broadcast. Many people don’t realise this, and go ahead and get satellite TV service. Then they have to go and buy an HDTV set. However, within about two years, all TVs will be HDTV, because digital broadcasting will be the standard. So hang in there.
