Over the next few days WXXI and the other broadcasters in the Rochester region will be working to inform all of the coming analog televison shutoff on February 17th. One of the most important aspects of this conversion is the availibility of coupons to offset the price of the set-top converter boxes. This program will not take any more requests for coupons after December 31th. So, If you have been putting off the coupon reques, NOW IS THE TIME... It takes only a few minutes...
Go to www.dtv2009.gov
Call 888-DTV-2009 (888-388-2009)
If you are unsure about your needing converter boxes... Take the quiz at www.dtv.gov. And remember to check those 'other' tv sets in kids rooms, guest rooms or game rooms.
Wednesday, December the 17th. check for a red bar on the bottom of the screen on the local channels... If you don't see that bar... Chances are very good that you are 'all set' for the analog turn off..
