Welcome to the first EZ Digtal TV Newsletter of 2008!

There has been a lot of discussion about the Converter Boxes and Coupons. Today, we have some information to pass along.

The following is taken from: http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/CA6525813.html

A spokesman for Best Buy said Friday that the chain would have digital to analog converter boxes in all of its stores by February 18.

"We will have the boxes in time for the first people who get their coupons," Best Buy spokesman Brian Lucas said, adding that the date would be either Feb. 17 or 18.

He said the stores - 917 of them in 49 states - are stocking only one box, its Insignia store brand, which will retail in the $50-$70 range.

Lucas was commenting on a letter National Association of Broadcasters president David Rehr sent to Best Buy and seven other top retailers advising them that they should have the boxes on the shelves when the coupons are received to make sure that nobody walks into a store and can't buy one.

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration said this week that it had been in close contact with the major retailers and was confident that they would all have the boxes by mid-February, when the NTIA plans to start processing and mailing the coupons.

The NTIA added two new coupon-eligible converter boxes to their list bringing the total to 34. They are the Homecast Access HD DTA 1020D and the Homecast Access HD DTA 1020U.

We will put the specifications for each box on the Converter Box Retailers and Converter Box Info pages as soon as the information is available.

RadioShack is now selling the Zenith DTT900 for $69.99 and it is only available in stores.
