Here are some of the details:
- Digital converter boxes will allow current analog TVs to receive digital signals over the air. TVs connected to cable or satellite can already receive digital signals and will not need a converter.
- The government will provide requesting households up to two $40 coupons towards the purchase of two converter boxes. I checked with local retailers and the boxes are selling for $59.95. So the net cost would be $20 plus tax.
- Circuit City, Best Buy, Radio Shack, and Walmart are a few of the retailers in my area participating in the program.
