Q&A and Screening of Iowa DTV Answers Thursday, August 7 at 6:30 p.m.

Iowa Public Television and the Science Center of Iowa are teaming up to give you answers about DTV!

With so much information out there about the universal switch to digital television, many of us are still left with basic questions: Will I need a new TV? Will I still get all the same channels? Why is this happening, and what do I need to do to be ready?

On Thursday, August 7 at 6:30 p.m., the Science Center of Iowa and Iowa Public Television will present an information session that answers these questions and more as you prepare for February 17, 2009 when analog TV becomes a thing of the past. The evening begins with Iowa DTV Answers, a 30-minute program that addresses many concerns about the transition. Then at 7 p.m., IPTV Director of Engineering Bill Hayes will answer your questions about digital television.

The event will be hosted in the John Deere Adventure Theater at the Science Center of Iowa and is ideally suited for anyone with questions about digital television. Doors for this event open at 6 p.m.

My concern with DTV is that when there are storms in the area the reception will be weak and even go out. We bought our antenna because we live in the rural area -- when there are storms in the area the satelite does not work but the analog does. My daughters have DTV in their areas and when there are storms they get NO TV. That's my concern.
