ATSC stands for Advanced Television Systems Committee. It is the new organization created to establish technical standards for new television systems in the U.S. The old standards are referred to as NTSC, which was named for the National Television Systems Committee that established rules in 1953.

To receive Broadcast Television Signals of NTSC Analog or ATSC Digital a television antenna is needed. If the TV has ATSC built in , then a converter box will not be needed.
