Government Coupon

As one of the eight people in America who actually uses bunny ears to get my TV, I am somewhat interested in the transition to digital broadcast television for 2009. I had seen all those commercials, and decided to fill out the form to get a coupon. Well on Friday, my government coupon arrived (right top), entitling me to $40 off a digital converter box (right bottom).

A couple of things are actually nicer about watching digital tv. For one thing, because there are extra digital bits, you actually get program information along with the signal, so I know what's coming up next. The signal seems to be clearer, and I even get some 'bonus' channels, like a 24-hour-a-day Pittsburgh weather channel. Sweet dudes. I'm ready for the digital revolution.

I also have an extra coupon, if anyone is interested.
