DTV Coupons Available Next Week

The Office of Management and Budget has announed that funding for DTV-to-analog converter box coupon program has reached the National Telecommunications and Information Administration making it likely that coupons will once again begin to flow to consumers next week.

"We apportioned these funds earlier this week; coupons will start being received next week," confirmed an OMB official.

The $40 coupons, up to two per household, allow analog over-the-air TV's to display a digital signal. Over a third of TV stations have now gone all digital after more than 400 pulled the plug on the original DTV hard date of Feb. 17.

The NTIA has announced it will take several weeks to service the backlog of requests and expects another rush of requests as consumers are informed that the coupons are once again flowing. The bill that moved the hard transition date also allowed everyone with expired coupons to reapply for those coupons.

  1. This is the worst customer service I've ever experienced. we ordered an antennae from them, and they sent me a box that was already opened and didn't contain all the parts. They won't take your calls, and they won't respond to your emails. They owe me $20.
