Two years from today, all analog over-the-air (OTA) TV broadcasts in the USA are supposed to shut down, by federal law. Practically all TV stations are now broadcasting digital signals on second channels. Beginning on March 1 this year, all new devices that can receive broadcast TV signals (TVs, VCRs, DVD recorders, etc.) must include digital (ATSC) tuners. Since last March, all TVs larger than 25 inches have already had to include digital tuners. If you use a satellite or cable TV service, this is a non-issue. Satellite TV is digital anyway. Cable TV operators can continue to deliver analog signals as long as they want to, although they'll have to convert the broadcast channels from digital to analog in order to do so. I wonder how many of us still use OTA TV? I do, and I've already switched to digital using the same rooftop antenna that I used for analog. The picture is usually better, although I have to be more careful about aiming the antenna. Digital TV reception is basically "all or nothing." When the signal drops below a certain level, the picture breaks up dramatically, instead of just picking up a bit more noise ("snow").
