Coupons available for digital converters

Are you ready for February 18, 2009, the day analog over-the-air signals go dark?  If you need help, the federal government is here to help (somewhat).  Starting today, every household in the United States are eligible for two (2) $40 coupons.  However, there are some catches.

The first 22 million coupons will go to all households that request them. That includes a residence that gets cable service for one television but has a spare TV that still uses an antenna, for example.

The rest will go towards those who can’t afford cable or satellite service.  The first 22 million coupons are on a first come, first serve basis.  I’ve put in my order for two.
