Captioning on Cable TV Systems

Solution Some cable providers, in addition to providing an HD digital signal, will also choose to provide a lower-quality down-converted analog signal for compatibility with older televisions. For visually impaired viewers wanting to take advantage of closed captioning services, it is important that the HD digital channel be used.

KATU provides a digital signal only, as the FCC no longer allows analog television broadcasts, and digital captioning does not usually make a good translation to the analog signal provided by some cable providers.
