Digital TV

Digital TV, the biggest change since colour in 1967, is coming to Arran next month. Digital TV is a new technology which can transmit hundreds of TV channels to the viewer simultaneously in perfect picture quality and perfect CD quality.

The existing analogue TV system is old and leaves no room for improvement, or any expansion to the amount of programmes that we will be able to view. It is also affected by interference and weather and the picture can be grainy, snowy or ghosty. Digital TV suffers from none of these annoyances because of the robust nature of the signal. Sky digital satellite TV plans its launch on October 1 and it will supply around 200 channels for TV and around 40 for CD quality radio. Shopping, banking and learning will all come online and the set top box will be able to receive these services right away.
