KBYU-TV to air “The ABCs of HDTV” April 5 and 8

KBYU-TV, Channel 11, will air The ABCs of HDTV on Saturday, April 5, at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, April 8, at 8:30 p.m.

During the informative 30-minute program, host Nick Clooney will take a look at the nationwide switch from analog to digital television, describe what it means for people who receive TV signals over the air and outline the new features and services available via digital TV.

On Feb. 17, 2009, television stations in the United States will no longer broadcast in analog. Those who receive their television over-the-air will need a simple converter box for their analog television sets or they will not receive the digital television signal. The Feb. 17, 2009 digital transition date does not apply to those who watch digital television sets or who subscribe to cable or satellite service providers.

Nearly 25 percent of Utah families currently receive their television through free over-the-air signals using TV antennas. The Federal Government is offering a program that enables each household to request two free $40 coupons that can be used at retailers to purchase converter boxes. Only one coupon can be used per converter box.

KBYU-TV is currently broadcasting in both analog and digital. Those who purchase a converter box or a digital television set can receive the following KBYU-TV channels: 11.1 – KBYU-TV; 11.2 – BYU Television; 11.3 – BYU Television International; 11.4 – KBYU-Create; and 11.4 KBYU-HD from 6 to 10 p.m. each evening.

A complete listing of programming available on KBYU-TV is available at http://www.kbyutv.org or by calling 1-800-298-5298. Additional information on the digital television transition is available at http://www.kbyutv.org/dtv.
