The change from Analog television transmission to digital broadcast has been delayed until June.
DTV Transition Date Extended to June 12, 2009. Thank goodness because not everyone has the money to spend for the conversion. If you have an older analog TV and have been using old fashion rabbit ears, you have to break down and purchase a new digital television set. All the new televisions have a digital tuner or a converter box to convert the new digital signals to analog. All households are eligible for up to two coupons worth $40 each to be used toward the purchase of up to two digital to analog converter boxes. You can find details at 1-888-225-5322 or Coupon Program
Requests will be taken from January 1, 2008, through March 31, 2009.
You may want to request DTV converter box coupons as early as you can, because the program might not have sufficient funds to meet the demand.
Cable, satellite or other pay-TV subscribers, especially, should not delay, because their eligibility will lapse if the initial funding becomes depleted. (If you subscribe to a pay-TV service, you probably will not need a DTV converter box unless you also own an analog TV that is not connected to the service.)
Be patient when contacting the above telephone, their system is probably crashing from the rush to beat the coupon deadline. Some of us wait until the last minute to complete task.
