Two Days Left to get DTV Coupons in Order to Make Conversion Deadline
KENNEWICK, Wash-- The date we've all been talking about has been February 17th--that's the day all analog signals go off the air. But there's a new date you need to listen to: December 31st. If you don't sign up for a government issued DTV coupon by wednesday, you won't get your coupon in time for the conversion.
We spoke with the Kennewick Best Buy, who says the demand has been high. They also say they've run out of converter boxes, but they get new shipments in 2-3 times a week.
So the good news--it is not too late to pick up your converter box. The bad news is the demand appears to be as high as ever.
The box will run you about $60, but the coupon will cut $40 from that. To sign-up, just log onto www.dtv2009.com follow the three basic steps to get your coupon.
