The word ‘digital’ simply refers to the way in which TV signals are broadcast (sent) and received by TVs in homes around Australia. Australian TV is broadcast only using Digital Signal now as the analog signal was phased out between 2010 and 2013.
The main benefit of digital TV is that most people will enjoy a much better picture and sound quality. You will also be able to receive more TV channels and see pictures in widescreen. There are now 34 Digital Channels being broadcast from Brisbane and similar in other regions around Australia.
