What is digital TV?
Digital TV sends information in a different way to traditional television.

This means hundreds of channels can be squeezed in and pictures can be sent much quicker.

There are three sorts of digital TV: satellite (from a satellite dish), cable (from an underground cable) and terrestrial (through your normal TV).
