Free Digital TV Converter Boxes
On February 17th, 2009, all full power television stations in the United States will switch from analog to 100% digital. If your television does not have a digital tuner, you will need a digital converter box in order to view over-the-air television broadcasts. This only applies to signals obtained with an antenna. Cable and satellite signals are not affected.
FreeTVSignal is offering Sunkey SK-801 ATSC digital converter boxes for $40 with free shipping and no tax (except for Florida residents). This is an excellent deal, especially combined with the 2 free $40 coupons from the Government, which are good towards the purchase of digital converter boxes.
If you use over the air broadcast television and you don’t want to fork out cash for digital tuners, get on this deal! For reviews and discussion of this digital converter box, check out this thread on AVSForum.
Free Digital TV converter box update: FreeTVSignal is now offering the Artec T3AP Digital converter boxes for $40 with free shipping and no tax (except FL). This Artec digital converter box has also received pretty good reviews online. If you’ve still got a valid DTV coupon, you can still obtain a box absolutely free from FreeTVSignal.com.
