TiVo is Digital TV
What you need to be Digital Ready
TiVo is digital ready and compliant with the Commonwealth Government's Digital Ready scheme.
From 2010, the analogue TV signal will begin to be switched over to digital across Australia, and the Government's aim is to encourage Australians to move to digital TV before analogue switch-off completes in 2013 (at which time every television in every home will need to switch over to digital in order to keep receiving free to air television).
The TiVo media device is Digital Ready (as per the Government's scheme) and already receives the digital free to air channels that are available today, removing the need for an additional set-top-box. This is because the TiVo media device has built in digital tuners (or in other words, incorporates a digital set-top-box). This means that as more free to air digital channels launch in the future, TiVo customers will be able to receive them without needing to make any changes to their media device. It receives the High Definition and Standard Definition digital television channels (and if your television is HD-ready, you will see those channels in true HD quality).
