Digital TVs

I was just reading the Australian Government’s site on the conversion to digital TV. Two of the reasons they give for switching over are a complete load of lies, though the rest of the reasons are good ones. The recorded format of the TV signal is completely independent of the format that is transmitted as they are going to have to convert it anyway. Here are the two offending points. I suspect that they just put them in there so that there were three dot points under each heading to be pleasing to the eye.

  • Overseas programs are increasingly being recorded in the digital format only
  • Australian TV shows need to be recorded in the digital format to be easily exported overseas
