Any complex words[change source]

Are there some complex wordings around here I need to simplify? — Preceding unsigned comment added by September 1988 (talkcontribs) 19:01, 1 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

complex words: transmission, digitally processed, multiplexed, supports, full-power, ceased, followed suit, phased out
meaning changes:
  • Your wording says "supports more than one program in the same channel". Leaving out the word "bandwidth" changes the meaning, so it should be put back.
  • You say that the switch to digital TV happened in June 2009 in the US, and that other countries followed suit. This is misleading because it sounds like the US was the first, which it wasn't. Please fix that. In this article, in fact in any article, keep a more global perspective by not over-emphasizing what the US did.
other notes:
  • Instead of saying "the term digital television refers to", just say "Digital television is". For one thing, it's simpler. For another, the first words in an article should usually be the title of the article.
  • Audio is a disambiguation page -- please make the same change here as you did for Analog television.
  • "Program" needs to be linked or qualified, because that word can mean more than one thing.
  • "Taken over with" doesn't make sense: please reword that.

I reorganized the article, linked several complexes and changed the structures of the article. Angela Maureen (talk) 17:18, 2 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I struck out the things that have been taken care of. Two of the complex words still need to be addressed, and I added a new one: "phased out".
"Bandwidth channel" should be "channel bandwidth". "Bandwidth" should also be linked.
About the note I made above on keeping a global perspective: If you're not going to list the dates that the countries changed, it's a good practice to list the countries alphabetically. If you don't, it looks like you're emphasizing certain countries when there's no reason to.
If you fix those, I'll make a couple of grammar fixes and it should be ready to go. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:31, 6 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I fixed the words and changed them. Something else? Angela Maureen (talk) 05:40, 6 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
