The government is running out of $40 coupons for converter boxes needed for the Digital TV Transition in

The government is running out of $40 coupons for converter boxes needed for the Digital TV Transition that is scheduled to take place on February 17, 2009.

The switch will mean improved picture and sound for TV viewers, but about 15 percent of the population rely on analog-only over-the-air signals and therefore need a converter box to keep their screens from going black.

Once the alloted funds have been reached, they will not hand out any more coupons until funds from the unredeemed coupons become available.
