Since the transition to digital TV will take a long time to complete, you’ll be able to watch analogue broadcasting for years. As a point of reference, it took 13 years for sales of color televisions to surpass black-and-white sales. In comparison, digital television represents a change of even greater complexity. The earliest that Canadian analogue stations may be allowed to shut down has yet to be determined but it is likely to be much beyond the year 2009, when analogue television broadcasting is expected to terminate in the US. Because analogue broadcasting will be with us for some time, current models of HDTV receivers also receive and display analogue TV signals.
