It's coming to a TV station near you very soon, and there's no escaping it. You've probably heard people talking about it, seen it on the news, heard it on the radio, and read it in the newspaper. Millions of Americans have already prepared for this upcoming event. The groundbreaking Digital TV Transition will hit American television airwaves on June 12, 2009.
This new technology will unlock many channels on your TV sets, so to help you keep up with the programs, the Magazines & Newspapers Center would like to highlight one of its longstanding magazines--TV Guide.
You might have remembered going to your favorite supermarket, lining up in the grocery lines, and flipping through pages of the small squarebound magazine to pass the time. Well, times have changed, and the magazine has expanded its size and content. You're probably already familiar with getting weekly listings of your favorite cooking shows, soap operas, movies, documentaries, and TV series. Now, you can read up on previews of upcoming TV series, get the latest scoops from in-depth interviews with your favorite TV and movie stars, explore highlights from shows you may never even heard of, and more.
If you have a home satellite dish, and TV Guide just doesn't cut it, then reach over for Satellite Orbit, one of the most comprehensive if not definitive television guides for over a hundred different digital channels! This magazine covers a month's worth of TV listings and delineates them according to their respective time zones. Other special features include an alphabetical listing of movies with synopses and ratings, categorized sports listings, show listings organized by genre, and highlights of noteworthy shows
With only a few days remaining till this monumental digital transition, feel free to drop by the Magazines & Newspapers Center so you can use these magazines to help plan out your future television viewing schedule.
