Get Your DTV Converter Coupon Today!

Not quite Internet policy or law - but the Department of Commerce has initiated its coupon program for those who will need converter boxes for their analog TVs, so that those analog TVs can receive digital. 
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.

A TV connected to cable, satellite or other pay TV service does not require a TV converter box from this program.

Consumers have a variety of options. Options to explore include:
  1. Keep your existing analog TV and purchase a TV converter box. A converter box plugs into your TV and will keep it working after Feb. 17, 2009, or
  2. Connect to cable, satellite or other pay service, or
  3. Purchase a television with a digital tuner.
It is recommended that if you want to take advantage of this offer, do so promptly.
