Is buying a new HDTV really necessary?
You do not really need to buy an HDTV. The quality of programming on an HDTV is far more superior than a regular digital TV. HD TVs are also far more expensive than the usual TVs around.
Some people with analog TV sets would choose not to change their televisions. Converters are available for people who choose to stick to analog They too, can enjoy digital programming with the help of a converter. There are rabbit ears antennae that were built to receive and process digital signals as well. People who have cable or satellite TV services can stick to their analog without any hassle.
