How Do I Get a Digital Converter Box Coupon?

The switchover to all digital television is happening June 12, 2009.  If you don’t want to upgrade your TV or subscribe to cable or satellite TV and you want to keep watching your television shows, you’ll need to get a digital converter.

The good news is, digital converters are fairly inexpensive.  Even better, the Federal Communications Commission is offering $40 coupons for the purchase of digital converters.  So you can be a part of the analog to digital TV transition at low or no cost!

And getting a digital converter coupon is pretty simple.

Just visit the Federal Government’s Digital TV website and fill out the request for a form.  They’ll ask you for some information, like your name and address and if you subscribe to cable or satellite TV.  Remember that you’ll also need a digital converter for each analog television in your house.  The FCC allows up to two $40 digital converter coupons per household.  Coupons are good for 90 days from the date you request them.

And if you’re a nursing home resident, there’s a separate digital converter coupon form to fill out.

Digital converter coupons are only good for certain digital converter boxes and at certain retailers, so make sure you check the FCC’s list of eligible retailers and eligible digital converters.  Also note that these coupons are not rebates – you have to use it when you purchase a digital converter, not afterwards.
