For those of you who don't know, television broadcasters will be ceasing to broadcast in the old NTSC (analog) format on February 17 2009. So if you currently watch "over the air" TV with an antenna, you'll need a new TV with a ATSC (digital) tuner, or purchase a converter box for your old analog TV. Most folks probably pay for their TV reception with cable, or satellite and don't have to worry - or do you? For example, I have an old 12" B&W TV in my workshop that has no cable or satellite receiver attached to it - so I will need to buy a converter box for this 30 year old relic. Don't fear though, the government will help you out. Just go to: https://www.dtv2009.gov/ And apply for a coupon that will allow you to get 40 bucks off a qualifying DTV converter box. This typically means an out of pocket cost of about 20-25 bucks. They allow for up to 2 coupons per household, so get 'em while their hot. There are no income restrictions, and you can even have cable or satellite TV. Coupons are good for 90 days after you get them, so don't wait!
