For those of you who would like some assistance in upgrading your analog broadcast television sets to digital in preparation of the television industry eradicating the present TV systems to make way for the HD TVs, here is an offer that may please you.
The website “TV Converter Box” offers a coupon worth $40.00 off any eligible converter you purchase for converting your TV to HD. The website is here:
Or you may call the site’s toll-free number: 1-888-DTV-2009.
Here is a PBS link that gives information on the coming digital age of television: http://www.pbs.org/opb/crashcourse/
Congress created the TV Converter Box Coupon program for those households which wish to keep their soon to be obsolete analog TV sets after February 17, 2009. The program allows U.S. families to obtain 2 coupons and keep their old sets and still be able to view programs in the new format system.
The site tells you about digital television transition, your options on whether or not to convert to HD, how to apply for a coupon, frequently asked questions about the converter boxes, and the location of a dealer near you who sells the boxes.
There are two important items to remember:
-You are allowed only up to 2 coupons per physical address, and, you can only obtain one coupon per converter box;
-You have only 90 days from the date of acquisition, to use the coupon. So, please, do not request the coupon(s) if you cannot use them within the 90 day period.
The impending digital future is upon us.
Getting a little help to prepare for it is something we could all use a lot of.
