What should I know about the digital television transfer?

The digital television transfer, mandated by the federal government, means that as of June 12, 2009, broadcast television stations in the United States will stop broadcasting in analog and will broadcast exclusively in digital. This means that any analog TV set that is operated with an antenna will not work without a digital converter box. If you have an analog TV and if you subscribe to a TV service - including cable, satellite and broadband - or if you have a digital TV, you will not be impacted by the change. Otherwise, to keep watching your favorite shows, you will need to buy a TV converter box. The boxes range in price from about $40 to $90 and are available at most major electronics stores. Check out this list of federally certified converter boxes and go here to apply for a government coupon.

The switch is intended to provide a clearer picture and free up airwaves for use by emergency responders. To learn more about this change, see this list of Frequently Asked Questions.
