Do I need a set top box for my television?

Do I need a set top box for my Television?
A set top box will give you a much clearer and crisper picture and will allow you to programmes in widescreen 16:9. It also provides you with the ability to enjoy CD quality sound. TV signals through your antenna are transmitted as an analogue signal, a set top box will convert this into a digital signal which ensures no signal loss.

My TV reception looks fine so do I really need one?
 A set top box:

- enables widescreen TV 16:9

- if Standard Definition, enhances picture sent to the TV by 400%

- if High Definition, enhances picture sent to the TV by 800%

- Provides free to air channels (2x SBS, 2x Seven/Prime, 2x NINE, 2x ABC)

- only needs a weak analogue signal

A set top box is the cheapest and most effective way to get a perfect signal from your antenna. A digital set top box requires 51% signal strength from your antenna in order to convert it to a perfect digital image. For even more information, visit at the Digital Broadcasting Australia website.
