In less than two months the transition to digital TV begins. No doubt you've been hearing about this for the last year. Are you ready? I am--sort of. I have the box already. Yes, I don't have cable or satellite service. I got the converter box in June, but haven't hooked it up yet. I only got ti then because I knew I needed to apply for a $40 off coupon. Upon hearing about this in February this year I immediately signed up for the coupon online. I was trying to get a jump on getting one, not knowing at that time that the coupon would expire 90 days after receipt. I did not receive mine until the last week of April. I then noticed that it expired on July 10. So I knew I ahd to use it immediately. Since each household is limited to only two coupons, I could not afford to waste this just because it was so early. This is different from the paper coupons you use at grocery or drug stores; I just could not afford not to use it, as it was too good not get $40 off the box, and I needed the box. I eventually got the box in June at Best Buy. Now I just need to hook it up, and will do so before February 17, 2009. I saw no reason to hook it up immediately, since that was not necessary. But at least I'm ready to begin.
How about you? Are you ready?
