The digital transition from analog to digital 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.
However, the government is out of $40 coupons for converter boxes needed for the Digital TV Transition that is scheduled to take place on February 17, 2009. You can however be placed on a waiting list when coupons/funds become available.
They will not hand out any more coupons until funds from the unredeemed coupons become available.
