Digital terrestrial television DTTV or DTT , or DTTB with "broadcasting" is a technology for terrestrial television in which land-based terrestrial television stations broadcast television content by radio waves to televisions in consumers' residences in a digital format. DTTV is a major technological advance over the previous analog television , and has largely replaced analog which had been in common use since the middle of the 20th century. The advantages of digital terrestrial television are similar to those obtained by digitising platforms such as cable TV, satellite, and telecommunications: more efficient use of limited radio spectrum bandwidth, provision of more television channels than analog, better quality images, and potentially lower operating costs for broadcasters after the initial upgrade costs. Different countries have adopted different digital broadcasting standards; the major ones are: . DTT is transmitted using radio frequencies through terrestrial space in the same way as the former analog television systems, with the primary difference being the use of multiplex transmitters to allow reception of multiple services TV, radio stations or data on a single frequency such as a UHF or VHF channel. The amount of data that can be transmitted and therefore the number of channels is directly affected by channel capacity and the modulation method of the transmission.

As a result of a joint venture between public broadcaster France Televisions and a number of cable and satellite operators, there are now a further 11 free viewing channels available on French television. Direct8 Culture, cinema, society on this channel which claims to be all live broadcasts. It is preferable to magnetic tape, the analogue method of storing information, as there is less likelihood of corrupting the signal and the information is stored on formats like Compact Discs which are more durable than the traditional magnetic tape.
The idea of digital recording has been around for a long time. However the first advance in recording was an improved analogue system, BetaCam. This was a component analogue system where the information was split up into colour and luminance, stored on separate tracks. These give an even better picture and make editing with on-line computer systems possible. This means that recording has recently been standardized again.
It does this by not specifying the information for each individual pixel, but rather the boundaries of groups of pixels of the same colour and brightness. The use of digital technology in recording television is now quite established — the present phase is the broadcasting of it — already widespread in England but fairly recently arrived in France.
