Each U.S. household is eligible for up to two $40 coupons for digital-to-analog converter boxes. All U.S. broadcast TV stations are scheduled to convert to digital signals by February 2009.
But people who use analog televisions to get over-the-air broadcasts won't be able to see those digital signals -- unless they use a converter box.
If you have a digital TV and you get your broadcasts over the air, you're all set for the change already.
And whether you have an analog or a digital TV, if you get your programming from cable or satellite, you need to contact your provider to find out what adjustments, if any, you need to make.
You can call 1-888-388-2009 to get coupons or you can apply at the government website. Click here for a link.
