Strong Demand for DTV Converter Coupons

Jan 4, 2008  •  Post A Comment

More than 1 million consumers have requested $40-off coupons for DTV converters in the first week the government offered the coupons.
The Department of Commerce said today that consumers have requested 1.9 million coupons. Each household without satellite or cable can get up to two coupons.
The coupons, due to be sent out in February, are intended to defray the estimated $50 to $70 cost of set-top boxes to be sold by major consumer electronics retailers that will allow consumers to get digital TV pictures on analog TV sets.
The government began offering the coupons on Jan. 1.


  1. Consumers should be aware that these coupons come with expiration dates and should not order them until there are boxes available at a reasonable price.

  2. The converter coupons are a joke! They are suppose to ease the transition to digital TV, but it’s certainly not working that way. They have a 90 day expiration date but are are being issued before digital converters are even widely available; they will have expired before the most desirable models are even on the market. And those that are currently being marketed appear to be in short supply; If you can find one, it’s usually the most expensive brand. There are some reasonably priced converters sold on-line, but they don’t accept the coupons. Why am I not surprised! Another government foul-up.

  3. what say we web page moderators erase junk comments? Many information websites I go to see that permit comments; the comments are so full with trolls and nonsense, I do not take the time looking through the comments. Why not eliminate the waste. No one will miss it; furthermore slice the tangents some folks embark upon.

  9. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
