Good bye analog TV

I remember growing up that we had the analog TV (the old "rabbit ears" on top of the TV). As of February of 2009, the analog TV broadcasts are being shut down, in theory to clear up those frequencies for emergency responders and the like.

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!
