Free Money - Get your TV Converter Box paid for by Uncle Sam
This is what your antenna reception will look like on February 17, 2009
unless you get a digital converter box!
For those of you that are unaware, at midnight on February 17, 2009, all full-power television stations in the United States will stop broadcasting in analog and switch to 100% digital broadcasting.
You will need a digital converter box if you use a roof antenna or rabbit ears (cable and satellite reception will be uninterrupted).
Congress created the TV Converter Box Coupon Program for households wishing to keep using their analog TV sets after February 17, 2009.
The Program allows U.S. households to obtain up to two coupons, each worth $40, that can be applied toward the cost of eligible converter boxes.
I just received my two coupons worth $80 today -- and I suggest you all get yours before the US Government runs out of money! FYI, I bought my boxes at www.tigerdirect.com. The coupons covered the full unit cost and all I paid was shipping (about $9 per unit).
