While I am fairly clueless about how all of this stuff works - I did want to pass on this deal David found out about!
Beginning next year, all TV's will be switched from analog to digital broadcasting. For those of us who hardly watch any TV and do not have cable or a digital TV, a fix is needed. This is where the Converter Box comes in. They are between $45 and $50 and are available at Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Radio Shack.
Here is the good news, you can apply for a $40 rebate by submitting this form. Our rebate came today and is good for 90 days from the date of issue.
I just wanted to pass on this info in case it would help someone else out!
