Some Pincher Creek and area citizens turned on their television sets to find nothing but static this morning.
Without much fanfare, but with plenty of warning, Canada's television broadcast system went digital. The analog tv signal is a thing of the past. Digital TV (DTV) is not a backwards-compatible system, meaning tv sets with analog tuners cannot pick up the signals without a digital tuner and an antenna.
Most newer tv sets already have a digital tuner built in. Cable customers are not affected by the change.
