Is Digital Cable the same as high-definition TV (HDTV)?

0

No. Digital Cable and digital HDTV both rely on the same basic technology, but they’re not the same thing. “Digital Cable” refers to a new platform for delivering hundreds of channels of television, music, On Demand service and more over existing cable lines. HDTV is an add-on service that uses the Digital Cable platform – and requires a special high-resolution TV set and special signal.

No, HDTV is a specific kind of digital signal format that requires a special television set. In addition, HDTV-ready television sets may require a Broadstripe HDTV decoder box to enable the set to display an HDTV signal. On the other hand, Broadstripe Digital Cable works on the television you already own, so there’s no expensive equipment to buy.
