Vouchers for Digital Converter Boxes

For those of you, probably a very few number, who receive their television strictly over the air or anyone who has a TV connected to rabbit ears, pay attention. Beginning January 1, 2008 people will be able to apply for vouchers from the government to assist in paying for digital to analog converter boxes for their television. Unless you have a relatively new television, your set won’t have a digital tuner and will need this box to acquire the new digital signals being broadcast now and mandated for the analog shut-off on February 17, 2009.

There are some key facts to know:

  1. Each household can apply for up to 2 $40 vouchers. The prices of the boxes will range from $40-$90 give or take a few so you should be fairly well covered.
  2. From January to march, ANYONE can apply for one of these boxes. After March, only those who get their television strictly over the air may apply. This means if you have an antennae for local channels and satellite for everything else, you must apply before March 2008.
  3. These vouchers will ONLY cover the basic tuner box.
    1. Antennae input and coax output. You won’t be able to use the vouchers on models that also have a DVD player or DVR (Digital Video Recorder) built in.
    2. There will also be NO outputs for high definition video or audio on these boxes. If you want any of these features, you will have to fork over the money yourself.

As of right now, there is only a little over a year left until the analog shutoff. Now is the time to start planning for the event.
