If your household relies on an outdoor antenna or “rabbit ears” indoor antenna to receive your favorite TV channels, then you have an important decision to make soon. Analog TV broadcasting, which is the way that TV shows have been beamed to homes since 1939, officially comes to an end on the evening of February 17, 2009. On that date, TV broadcasters must complete turning off their transmitters and switch all programming to new digital broadcasting.
