Yeah, those things
Anyway, the government is giving out coupons for $40 off a digital converter box (which should give you the "basic" channels for free). The converter boxes are typically around $40, so this should get you one for free. It's nice that they are making this available, so I would recommend going on the Web site and getting a coupon and a free box, even if you're not using the rabbit ears at this point. For free, why not, right?
Thanks to Victor for the heads up!
