our world tuesday: Going digital.

New Zealand is going digital television. It begins in September 2012, and by the end of 2013 the old analogue television signal will be shutting down, meaning that every TV will need a digital receiver to work.

We bought a Samsung 40" Full HD LED-LCD Television in October. We bought this sleek flat panel TV that can be hung on the wall, but we chose to sit it on our old TV Cabinet.

For the best possible Full HD picture quality this Samsung 40" LED TV features HyperRealEngine, Ultra Clear Panel Technology, ConnectShare USB2.0 Movie, and 4 x HDMI inputs. There are so many features that the water engineer is having a ball operating it. There are many channels that we couldn't watch on our analogue TV.

A digital signal can carry more information than the old analogue network, which means it delivers better picture and sound quality. It also lets broadcasters offer more channels and a range of new services like on-screen TV guides.

If you’re not doing one of these things, you may need some new equipment to be able to watch TV after your area has gone digital.

Here the obsolescence is of long standing. We have had a 49" screen since Dec. last year.
