Digital TV Information

FREE DIGITAL TV IN CARBON COUNTY!

Carbon County is now broadcasting, free, over-the-air, digital television channels from its Star Point, Ford Ridge, and Helper communication sites. These channels are the Salt Lake area channels 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, and 30. The digital TV project in Salt Lake City was finished by February 2009 an now almost every home in the Carbon County area will have the capability of receiving FREE, over-the-air, DIGITAL television channels, each of which has one or more SUB channels for a total of as many as 33 channels. 

WHAT WILL YOU NEED TO RECEIVE THE NEW OVER-THE-AIR DIGITAL TELEVISION SIGNALS IN YOUR HOME?

  1. You will need a reasonably good UHF television antenna and feed line (COAX cable). If you have a splitter in-line to feed more than one television, you may need a good low-noise UHF pre-amp or distribution amp.

    Position the antenna's orientation so it faces our transmitting sites (see diagram below).

  2. You will need either a television with a built-in receiver labeled as ATSC, or a stand-alone digital ATSC box that will sit on top of your regular analog TV.

    Most large-screen TV's on the market today have the ATSC (digital receiver) built in. If you are planning to buy a new television in the near future, be sure to look for the ATSC (digital receiver) listed on the box or display. If you buy a TV that says "HDTV Monitor" or "HDTV Ready", then it most likely DOES NOT have a digital receiver built in, and you will need to purchase a stand-alone ATSC box. Be sure to ask your sales person to verify whether or not it has the digital television receiver built in.

    For televisions that do not have a built-in "ATSC" digital tuner, there is a "SET TOP" box that plugs into your existing TV just like a DVD player does.
