Yes, but Digital TV is a totally different thing.  Yes Digital TV and 
Digital Cable both include the word Digital, but that's about the only 
similarity.  Digital Cable is a bit more similar to DirecTV or Dish 
Network, in that they are using digital encoding to transmit what starts 
out as an analog signal, where in Digital TV the signal is Digital all the way.

I hope this hasn't caused more confusion.  If I have, perhaps someone who 
is better with words could help me out (please!).
