Television, one of the greatest ent
ertainment devices ever created.

Back in the day, people were outsta
nded by the capability of being abl
e to watch broadcasts in black & wh
ite.

People were amazed by the technolog
y of being able to watch live broad
casts from across the world, films
and sports all whilst not having to
 leave their homes.

Then came along colour!

Obviously, we have come a long way
since then, what with the capabilit
ies of computers and the internet,
video calling and other technologic
al advances, having colour televisi
on all seems a bit primitive.

Since colour television there also
have been some more advances for ou
r viewing pleasure.
There was the VCR, giving people th
e choice of recording their program
mes or buying video_s for their kid
s.

Then came along DVD. DVD produced i
mproved quality in audio and visual
 a normal VCR cassette couldn_t com
pete with, as well as separating th
e films into scenes and sections, a
nd adding extras.

Now with digital television widely
becoming the standard, we have LCD
(Liquid Crystal Display) & Plasma s
creens, again improving picture qua
lity whilst saving space. But it do
esn_t stop there.

The new technology that again, will
 improve the viewing pleasure is _H
igh Definition TV_ or HDTV for shor
t.

So, what is HDTV?

HDTV is the latest generation of di
gital TV, providing life-like pictu
re quality, at least four times sup
erior to current standards. It will
 provide extremely clear and fine p
icture detail with richer colours,
improving the visual experience.

At launch, HDTV is thought to be av
ailable from BSkyB. In order to vie
w programmes broadcast in 'High Def
inition', a soon to be released HDT
V Sky Receiver with Sky+ technology
 will be required. In addition, the
 benefit of High Definition will on
ly be apparent through a HDTV telev
ision (ideally plasma or LCD).

Please note, not all Plasma & LCD t
elevisions currently available are
HDTV compatible. It is expected to
become available in the first quart
er of 2006.
