What’s the difference between DTV and HDTV?Although DTV (or ‘digital TV’) sounds similar to HDTV (or ‘High Definition TV’), they are not. The best way to understand the differences between them is to know what they do. Digital means the TV is no longer transmitted by antenna (meaning analog); it is now transmitted digitally. Digital television provides better quality pictures and sound. HDTV or High Definition Television just means a much better grade of digital television. The quality of sound and picture are now in ‘high-definition’, which means they are more lifelike. So while the quality of digital is good, the quality of High Definition is much better. But you must first have digital television (DTV) before you can upgrade to High Definition Television (HDTV).
