In 2009 “TV” is scheduled to go “digital”. What this means is that the airwaves will no longer be analogue. It does not mean that everything switches to HDTV. It simply means that TVs with analogue tuners will no longer be able to receive broadcast signals which will be exclusively digital. If you have a cable or satellite box, this is not a problem and there is NO NEED TO GET A NEW TV. If you receive broadcast via an antenna, it will be a problem. You can either buy a digital tuner (cheap) or a new TV. Thanks to consumerism commentary for pointing that out. You can read more by clicking on the link.
