The future of television is here. WAFF 48 is transmitting WAFF-DT over the air on channel 49. The DT in WAFF-DT stands for Digital Television. This is the new type of television signal that will give you a sharper, clearer picture with much more detail and better sound then current TV signals.
The way television is broadcast in this country is changing. High Definition Television or HDTV will soon be the new standard in television.
HDTV is a digital signal, which means you will see the image exactly as it was sent from WAFF. You won’t see anymore snow or ghosts or fuzzy images. You will only see a crisp, clear picture. If you have ever watched a movie on DVD, you already know how much better the picture and sound can be.
But the difference doesn’t stop there. The resolution of your TV will be greater. You will see much more detail and the image will be more life-like. The clarity will be like looking through a window. If you haven’t yet seen a HDTV broadcast, you will be amazed when you do.
The image will also be wider than your current TV screen. Right now TV screens are almost square. They are only slightly wider than they are tall. HDTV is much more rectangular. The image will be almost twice as wide as it is tall. It will be like going to a movie theater.
But because this new signal is so different from current TV signals, your current television won’t be able to receive the signal without additional equipment. You will have some options.
Which option is right for you right now? Only you can determine if your personal financial position allows the purchase of new equipment. We do urge our viewers to stop in at local retail stores to check out the new DTV ready television sets and decide which is best for you.
As more information on WAFF-DT becomes available, we will post it here. In the meantime, get ready for television like you have never seen it before.
