    Default no

    no, you can not view these chanels on a multi system tv, you need first a HD (high definition) receiver and you also need an HD tv in order to watch the high definition chanels.

    almost all plasma tv's are HD capabale and most of all your PC monitor above 17" is suitable for HDTV and SDTV reception. but all the way, you will require some equiment to receive HD/SD tv reception.

    An HDTV capable Plasma TV unit

    What is HDTV
    A standard of digital television that is getting a lot of popularty right now. It is called high-definition television, or HDTV. HDTV is high-resolution digital television (DTV) combined with Dolby Digital surround sound (AC-3). HDTV is the highest DigitalTV resolution in the new set of standards. This combination creates a stunning image with stunning sound. HDTV requires new production and transmission equipment at the HDTV stations, as well as new equipment for reception by the consumer. The higher resolution picture is the main selling point for HDTV. Imagine 720 or 1080 lines of resolution compared to the 525 lines people are used to in the United States (or the 625 lines in Europe) -- it's a huge difference!

    The resolutions formats used in HDTV are:

    * 720p - 1280x720 pixels progressive
    * 1080i - 1920x1080 pixels interlaced
    * 1080p - 1920x1080 pixels progressive

    "Interlaced" or "progressive" refers to the scanning system. In an interlaced format, the screen shows every odd line at one scan of the screen, and then follows that up with the even lines in a second scan. Since there are 30 frames shown per second, the screen shows one half of the frame every sixtieth of a second. For smaller screens, this is less noticeable. As screens get larger, the problem with interlacing is flicker.
