Analog Format:Typically, televisions that have the rabbit-ear antennas are under the analog format. This format allows TVs to receive free over-the-air waves.
Digital Format: Televisions contain a digital tuner which allows more information to be utilized on the spectrum (allowing options such as multicasting) and clearer picture and sound.The different formats
If you bought a television before March 2007, it may not contain a digital tuner.
Once February 2009 comes around, if you have an analog-only television, it will simply not work because all television waves will be switched to the digital spectrum.
