Posted on April 17, 2009

DISH Network's programming packages are broadcast in 100% digital. If you're not sure what that means exactly here's some information on what digital television really is. Digital television (DTV) is a telecommunication system for broadcasting and receiving moving pictures and sound by means of digital signals, in contrast to analog signals in analog (traditional) TV.Digital television has several advantages over traditional TV, the most significant being use of a smaller channel bandwidth. This frees up space for more digital channels, other non-television services such as pay-multimedia services and the generation of revenue from the sales of frequency spectrum taken by analog TV. There are also special services such as multicasting (more than one program on the same channel), electronic program guides and interactivity. Digital television often has a superior image, audio quality and better reception than analog.
