Time is Running Out Before DTV Switch

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash--  A reminder if you still need to pick up a converter box before the DTV switch--  on Tuesday, KNDU and KNDO will turn off our analog signal. 

We stopped by the Kennewick Best Buy to see how prepared they are for any last minute buyers, and we found a mountain of new converter boxes for those who still need one.

"I've seen a lot of people very prepared for this," says one Best Buy employee.  "I think February 17th is still good, I don't think there's a need for a delay.  We are very prepared for it.  We're here to help people get what they need for the 17th.  As you can see, we've got a nice pile of them.  They're still flying off the shelves."

The Yakima Best Buy says they're fully stocked, too.  The boxes cost between $50-60, without factoring in any government issued coupons.
