Important Announcement

On June 12, 2009, the United States began switching from analog to digital TV signals. If you don't have a digital TV, cable or satellite box, you will need to purchase a digital convertor box to be able to watch television.
Analog television transmitters have been switched off which means anyone using an off air antenna to receive analog television will no longer have service. If you receive your television via cable or satellite you are not affected.


There are currently 3 ways to receive
Digital TV in the Central Florida area.


1. Off Air Broadcast

  • All of the above are currently on the air with a DTV channel that is free to receive with digital off air equipment.
  • The technical requirements for this option require a traditional rooftop off air antenna and a set top box or HDTV capable of receiving digital off air signals.
  • Because of the unique propagation conditions which can be present in Florida, it is sometimes possible to receive stations from the Tampa area. Check out TampaHDTV.com for more info.

2. Digital Cable

  • Central Florida has full HDTV support from Bright House Networks. The channels available include all of the HD off air channels above plus many more.
  • The BHN technical requirement for this option requires a phone call to swap out your regular set top box for a new HD set top box.
  • Comcast and ATT are also providing HD service in small pockets of Central Florida. Call your provider for details.

3. Digital Satellite

  • Both DISH and DirecTV have many HD channels.
  • The technical requirements for this option include a digital set top box capable of displaying HD signals from a satellite, a satellite dish, and an off air antenna to receive all local HD channels beyond the CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX provided by the satellite service.
