? involving Big Switch

twinklenoseMarch 30, 2009


I was wondering if after the Big Switch takes place, will I still be able to pick up the TV channels okay on a small radio that includes them?

Thank you!

Unless you can connect it to a DTV tuner (unlikely) it will not receive TV broadcasts anymore.

That's correct, as it will be a different frequency, and the sound format is digital, typically MPEG-2.

You may find certain things online that you can stream, if you are after tv news, for example, you can get the BBC world service as streaming audio.
