Media Advisory: Commerce Department To Announce Final Rule for Digital-To-Analog Converter Box Coupon Program

Program to Aid Americans in the Transition to Digital Television Broadcasting 
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) will announce the final rule for the Digital-to-Analog Converter Box Coupon Program, designed to help American consumers receive free over-the-air television when full-power television stations cease analog broadcasting after February 17, 2009.  
Digital television will provide consumers with a clearer picture, more programming, and open up much needed spectrum for advanced wireless services and interoperable communications among emergency first responders.  The converter box coupon program will assist Americans in receiving over-the-air broadcast television programming throughout the transition from analog to digital.
