If some media reports are to be believed, antennas for your television are useless as of next week.
Not so.
Switching to digital does not necessarily mean having to rid yourself of your old antenna, although in some cases it might.
More likely, people will have to make adjustments to older TV sets by either buying a digital converter or upgrading to a whole new television.
In any case, the misunderstanding and misinformation is leading to headline writers to proclaim the death of all antenna television as if Sept. 1.
That’s the biggest mistake if all.
If anything, antenna OTA television is getting a much-needed upgrade and will be, in many cases, the TV source with the best visual quality out there.
To my fellow journalists: Please do your homework and get it right. Antenna television is alive and well.
