CONSPIRACY NEWS – End of analog tv signals canada september 2011 bad idea; family television education programs affected low income families will feel the hardship to have to dole out extra finances to pay for cable.

I my self as a kid grew up with only 2 or three tv channels depending on the weather and reception. So why isn’t the Canadian government compensating cable users or offering a small affordable cable package for educational tv programs to low income families or pay for a converter that is around 70 dollars to get tv signals still its not there [ low income families] fault these changes are made?

This is maybe what the government is trying to do is to make people more internet savvy or reign in the digital technology for the better or worse? Like the dire straights song “I want my MTV” people should be asking I want my free tv instead, or money for nothing cable channels for free?

Digital television (DTV) is the transmission of audio and video by digital signals, in contrast to the analog signals used by analog TV. Many countries are replacing over-the-air broadcast analog television with digital television to allow other uses of the radio spectrum formerly used for analog TV broadcast.

There are a number of different ways to receive digital television. One of the oldest means of receiving DTV (and TV in general) is using an antenna (known as an aerial in some countries). This way is known as Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT). With DTT, viewers are limited to whatever channels the antenna picks up. Signal quality will also vary Link

The transition to digital television promises free HDTV, better picture and sound, more channels and more efficient use of the public airways. For some Canadians, however — those who live in small towns and who use an antenna TV — the shutdown of analog TV signals in 2011 could mean that they lose some channels altogether. Link

    same downunder (Australia), flat out getting a digital signal when there is a electrial storm around or strong winds and I have 30m high mast with amp, get a better and constant analogue signal during all weather conditions!!!! Thats till November 2012 when our area shuts down analogue!!! Just a government ploy to make more money fromGST/VAT taxes on new TVS, set top boxes, tv antennas ect. Look how many perfect working analogue sets are laying out front of houses and landfill !!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hate digital TV! when it works the picture is great, but it doesn’t work very often.
    The old analog system that I grew up with may have it’s downside but at least you
    could still watch it through the “snow” if you had to! When the weather is bad or the
    signal gets behind the smallest cloud you might as well go get some barbwire and
    wrap your head in it! Your eyes and ears will thank you. I’s great to watch a two hour
    movie just to have the last ten minutes turn into a indecipherable mess!
    In a word…WORTHLESS!!!.
