Pittsburgh, PA — January 23, — Congressman Mike Doyle PA held a press conference today to urge his constituents to get ready for the dramatic technical change in local television broadcasts that will take place on February 17th. Digital-to-analog set-top converter boxes receive digital signals and convert them into analog format for display on analog TVs. Analog sets connected to such converter boxes will display digital broadcasts, but not necessarily in the full, original digital quality.
Because the federal government has mandated this transition, the federal government is subsidizing the purchase of set-top converter boxes in order to minimize the financial impact of this change on individual households. Each household can receive up to 2 of these coupons.
Congressman Doyle will continue to work with retailers to ensure that converter boxes are available for purchase online as well as in local stores.
