All About Plasma Televisions: A Buyer's Guide

Part One: Why go plasma? Why go plasma in the first place?

Because the technology is there. In 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) enacted legislation compelling the nation's 1600+ television stations to change the way they broadcast their programming-i.e., to start transmitting it digitally. Thus began the rise of digital television (DTV) in America. For now, the FCC has allocated an additional channel spectrum to the media. This has allowed the media to offer digital broadcasts in parallel with their existing analog ones, giving consumers the opportunity to watch regular TV while they make the switch to DTV.

Once the transition to digital is complete-by the year 2006 or by the time 85% of US households get digital feeds, whichever occurs later-the federal government will auction off the original analog channel spectrum. And DTV will be the new standard in broadcasting. Sure, you'll still be able to watch your favorite shows in analog like always, but you'll need to "update" your existing TV with a device that converts digital signals into analog ones. All of which begs the question: Why not just go with the digital flow?
