Due to a new budget, consumers are going to be required to switch from a analog to digital TV signals, ultimately meaning if you don't have a digital TV or converter, you won't be able to watch TV
This converter coupon will most likely be worth $40 while the converter box will cost between $50 and $75.

The converter box will allow owners of old analog TVs to continue to watch the new digital signals. It's unclear when the converter boxes will be introduced to the public.

Cable and satellite operators are expected to provide set-tops that can convert digital signals to analog. So the 22 million U.S. homes that receive TV signals via off-air antennas will have the greatest need for the boxes.
