The Switch to Digital Television
The switch to digital TV is sometimes hard to understand, especially if you're not tech-savvy. But the government has mandated that all full-power telivision stations must immediately begin broadcasting in a digital format on February 17, 2009, so you'll need to know how to make the switch unless you want to wake up to static in February.
Digital television technology is far more adaptable and efficient than the analog system that is currently used in the United States. Switching to a digital broadcasting format will let stations offer much clearer sound and pictures, and more channels, to consumers for free.
Congress has created a special program for individuals and families who don't already have digital converter boxes on their televisions. This program involves giving two coupons, each worth $40, to buy digital converter boxes for their household televisions. This way, even families that wouldn't normally be able to afford to receive digital television can get these converter boxes free of charge. The coupons can be redeemed anywhere converter boxes are sold.
You can get these coupons by calling 1-888-DTV-2009, by filling out an online application at www.DTV2009.gov, or by mailing in an application to this address: P.O. Box 2000, Portland, OR 97208-2000.
