What Kind of Content is Available for HDTV?

0

There’s no point to having an HDTV if there’s nothing to watch. Here are sources for HDTV content: • Over the air (OTA). TV stations are broadcasting HDTV versions of some of their shows at the same time as the regular NTSC version goes out, using different channels assigned to them by the FCC. These channels are mostly UHF channels and you’ll need an antenna to get them. Antennas work up to 30 or 40 miles from the broadcasting tower. Probably rabbit ears would work if you’re right near the tower, else you’ll need a proper outdoor antenna. CBS, NBC and PBS use 1080i for HDTV, while ABC and FOX use 720p. Some HDTV shows on now: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Family Law, 60 Minutes, Judging Amy, Yes Dear, King of Queens, Friends, Will and Grace, Touched by an Angel, Young and the Restless. Rose Bowl and Rose Parade are NOT in HD. Sometimes the Superbowl is broadcast in HDTV and sometimes not. All broadcasters are supposed to switch to digital TV by 2006. I say digital TV rather than HDT
