Lurching Toward Digital

The USA DTV coupon program is out of money. The vouchers are intended to help purchase digital converter boxes for consumers with older televisions (and analog TV tuner cards) needed to convert digital broadcasts to the legacy format after the February 17, 2009 deadline for stopping analog broadcast TV. $1.34 billion was reserved for the program.

Now the advocacy group Consumers Union is urging a delay in the transition date.
