Thrifty Thursday - Digital TV Transition - Converter Coupon
Yes I know it's Friday, but whatever:).
Therefore, next year, television will no longer be broadcast in analog and the television signals are to be converted to digital. I am not an expert, by any means, but have figured out this means our television, which does not have a digital converter box, will be obsolete. After a bit more research, I found out that I don't have to go out and buy a new TV if we want to still have TV (much to my husband's dismay).
First of all, if you get cable, I believe you don't have to make any major changes until 2012, but don't quote me on that.
If you are not getting an HDTV or DTV anytime soon and we would like to still have our basic stations even. You can get a coupon for $40 off a converter box (they are supposed to retail at between $50 and $60) while the coupons last.
