Question about Televison & Video
I have an old television with rabbit ears and although I rarely watch it, I don't want to buy a new one. What can I do to continue getting free programming ie. The local news?
Hi perplexa, I am happy to help. With an old tv that only has a analog receiver you will need to buy a Digital Conversion Set Top Box, this a device that is able to receive digital signals, the cost of thew box runs from $40 to several hundred dollars, the basic box is all you need though, it comes with a remote and several different ways to connect it to your tv. Fortunately the government is offering coupons for $40 dollars off the price of the boxes. That's the good news, now for the bad, The funds for the coupons have been exhausted, you will now have to put your name on a waiting list and wait for already issued coupons to expire. Here is a link to get on the waiting list.
Once you receive your coupon, it can be redeemed on line or at a local store eg: Walmart. You will also need a antenna which I assume you already have and you are set to watch Digital TV. If you need information on antennas go to this site. http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx
Enjoy your digital experience and let me know if I can provide further assistance. Lone99star
