The digital boxes are NOT for hd converters. They are $40 coupons designed to provide those households hooked up to an antenna or rabbit ears to receive the digital signal via the converter box. They convert the digital back into analog signals so older televisions can receive the "over the air" broadcasts only. Households can request up to two coupons , but since they are limited, please don't order them if you have a pay service. The boxes are scheduled to be priced between 50 and 70 dollars each and should be sold in Walmarts, kmart, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc. To order call 1888 388 2009 or go online to www.dtv2009.gov

I believe that's being offered by the FCC. It's a $40.00 coupon for a set-top converter to convert the digital channels to analog format for the older TV's. Trey looking up …the FCC on the web and search for the coupon program. That's the way I'm going to do it. The latest web address I show for it is https://www.dtv2009.gov/ApplyCoupon.aspx
You could but it would be a waste of the time, effort and coupon. You don't need one.
These have expired by now and they ar eno longer issuing coupons.

Call 'em and get another one. They know that messed up when they started and should be trying to make good with their coupons. You've got nothing to lose except a few minute…s of your time.
For most people, their old antenna will work just fine. Don't let the people at the electronics store fool you, there is no such thing as an "HD antenna." There is nothing s…pecial that needs to be done to an antenna to receive HD signals. In fact, many of the antennas that are being marketed as "HD antennas" are inferior UHF-only antennas that receive a smaller set of signals than your old antenna. However, some people who were barely receiving an analog signal may need to buy a better antenna. Also, if the location of the digital transmitter has changed or the signal strength of the TV station has changed, you may need to re-aim or replace your old antenna. Simply plug the old antenna into the converter box and then plug the converter box into your old TV where the antenna used to go and you will be fine. The converter box will tune in a digital station (some digital stations are HD, some are not) and convert the digital signal into an old-fashioned analog standard definition signal and feed it into your old analog TV. You will not be able to watch shows in HD on your old analog TV, but you will be able to watch a version of the HD broadcast that has been converted into Standard Definition (SD) for you. You will be able to watch all of the digital stations including the HD ones but you will see them in Standard Definition. Standard Definition is 480i. Digital to Analog converter boxes receive all tv transmissions of 1080P , 1080i , 720P , 480P , 480i and coverts them ALL to 480i to watch on a standard definition NTSC Analog TV.
HD capable, or HD ready televisions are, as their description suggests, ready to display HD. The term means that the television will accept and display any HD source that it …sees. In most cases, this will be an HD cable box or satellite receiver or a Bluray disc player. There are very few tHD ready televisions that have built in HD receivers but they are available if you look hard enough. Once an HD source is connected, the television will display high definition. All HD ready televisions will feature inputs based on HDMI interfaces, the new standard for digital video signals. "HD ready" doesn't imply anything about the display resolution of the television itself. HD signals are either 720 line or 1080 line. An HD ready television will accept either of these resolutions and display them but the number of lines that the television uses for its own display is often not 1080 or 720. A "scaler" or a "resize engine" is used inside the television to change the number of lines to fit the screen. If, for example, a television has a 768 line display, all incoming signals will be resized to fit the screen. It means that the maximum resolution that the television will display is 768 lines and not the 1080 line that may be delivered to the television. More expensive televisions will have a true 1080 line display which provides the best display quality for 1080 line incoming signals. There has been at least one example of a television available for sale that had a 480 line display, the number of lines used by North American standard definition signals. Nonetheless, the television proudly boasted that it was "HD ready". Indeed, it was, for the simple reason that it would resize a 1080 line HD display to 480 lines. Make no mistake, the quality of the image would be no better than any standard definition broadcast. You might say that the manufacturer was being deceptive even though it was technically correct. This serves as a caution to anyone looking for a low cost HD television- ALWAYS check the actual display resolution and aim for one that is as high as you can get for the money. Ideally, a 1080 line display is the one to go for but 768 line models tend to be less expensive.
Are there anymore free tv converter box coupons left? i need one badly but can't afford it.
No. Way too late to get coupons. But you can order converter boxes online cheaper than in store.
The government CECB program has expired so there are no more vouchers available to purchase converter boxes. Converter boxes are relatively inexpensive though, costing les…s than $50. The voucher program didn't offer free boxes, only discounts, so the consumer out of pocket expense was about $20-30 per box.
You can find cheap HDTV converter boxes from stores such as Best Buy and Walmart. Alternatively, you can also find this item available from retailers such as Amazon.
There is only one thing an HD converter box does for a television. A converter box make the specs on a television more clearer. This box creates a better picture for the vie…wers when they are watching television.
