Cable television and DTV

What about digital signals from cable?

Digital cable signals are expected to be available in mid-1998. You will need to connect a digital cable box to a DTV to enjoy the full benefits of the digital programming. An alternative is to convert the cable’s digital signal to analog. You will need to purchase a down converter cable box and connect it to your cable and analog TV. You will see the programming, but not get all the digital video and audio performance benefits of a DTV receiver.
