Best Answer

The move to digital television broadcasting reflects the change in production, storage and viewing of television content. Digital transmission adds features that analog services are unable to support and there is a flexibility in the use of transmission bandwidth that is also not possible with analog broadcasts.

As far as the viewer is concerned, digital television broadcasts allow far more channels to be received and normally with better image quality than seen with analog.
