Broadcasting is set to embark on a new era of growth as it helps lead viewers through next year's digital transition.
That was the message this week from the President of the National Association of Broadcasters, David Rehr. In his opening address in Las Vegas, Rehr also said, "that there will be a renaissance of over the air viewing with crystal clear pictures, phenomenal sound and more channels and services. And it's free- the way TV should be."
Rehr is referring to the digital transition coming in February next year. Analog signals will be permanently turned off. This means that if you are relying on an over-the-air antennae to receive your signal, and you don't have a digital television set, you'll need to purchase a converter box, or subscribe to cable or satellite.
