TV broadcasting has been "analog" so far in Japan.
But July 24th 2011, it will be changed.
All TV broadcasting will be "digital terrestrial", and current analog TV won't be available after that.
So people will have to buy a new one for new broadcasting.
Good points of digital terrestrial TV broadcasting is
- high quality of picture
- hight quality of sound
- useful service for elderies and handicapped people can be available.
- useful information for each area can be offered.
Digital terrestrial TV broadcasting is adopted in 20 countries like US, UK, Germany, Italy...
In 2011 TV sales should go up for sure.
