Television will soon be entering a new era when stations around the country will be turning off the analog signals they've been using since the first days of broadcasting.
With the long-awaited transition from analog to digital TV just over a year away, the government and U.S. broadcasters are rushing to get viewers ready for the big switch before it's too late.
On February 17, 2009 old analog TVs won't work without a special converter box . Beginning this week, the government is offering $40 coupons that would slash the price of one of these converter boxes down to ten or twenty bucks.
For more information on the coupons or to apply go to www.dtv2009.gov, or call 1-888-388-2009.
