Digital TV Transition Program Runs Out of Money

Good. A billion dollars should have never been spent to provide coupons for citizens without a converter box.

In letters to members of Congress, President Bush, and President-elect Obama, Consumers Union pointed to the fact that the government program that subsidizes crucial TV converter boxes has run out of money, and hundreds of thousands of affected consumers are now on waiting lists for coupons.


If any American hasn't figured out that the broadcasting community is switching its signal from analog to digital, then they don't need to watch television. Go read a book .... and by the way, help your kids with their homework! Consumer's Union, are you out of your damn mind?
