Eight switched to all-digital format April 29, 2009

Analog broadcasts of Eight in Maricopa and Pinal counties will no longer be available.

TVs across Arizona that receive Eight via a translator will continue to receive an analog
signal until we upgrade the translators in your area.

To watch Eight Digital Broadcasting, you have one of three choices:

1. Keep your analog TV and purchase a digital-to-analog converter box to receive digital broadcasting with an antenna.
2. Keep your analog TV and subscribe to a Pay TV service to receive digital broadcasts.
3. Purchase a new digital television with a digital tuner (a tuner is a device that receives broadcast signals).
