TV Converter Box Coupon Program

After February 17, 2009, all full-power television stations will broadcast only in digital.

If you use "rabbit ears" or a rooftop antenna with your analog television set, you must take some action to continue receiving television broadcasts.

The Federal Government is offering
US households up to two $40 coupons to help with the cost of certified TV converter boxes.

A converter box is a one-time purchase that will allow your analog TV to work after February 17, 2009.

Coupons are free but supply is limited.

Coupons will be mailed by the Federal Government.

Applications will be accepted from January 1, 2008 until March 31, 2009.

Coupons expire after 90 days and cannot be re-issued.
