What You Need to Know About the DTV Switchover (and How You Can Get Your Free Coupons)

May 25, 2008


On February 17, 2009, television will only be broadcast in digital rather than analog signals. What does this mean for you? You will need to buy a converter box only if you currently use an antenna to receive your television signal.

If you currently use cable, satellite, or have a built-in digital TV tuner, you do not need a converter box or need to do anything else. If you still need a converter box, you can apply for two free $40 coupons per household to offset the cost of converter boxes from now until February 17, 2009 or until they run out.

You don’t need to buy a new TV like many people were saying. All you need is a converter box so don’t use this as an excuse to buy something that you might not need.
