Digital Converter Box Coupons Funding Depleting
The transition from analog to digital t.v. is a little over a month away, and the waiting list for Federal coupons to pay for converter boxes is growing, and already has over 100,000 coupon requests.
As many as 8 million housholds are still unprepared, and the Commerce Department says those on the list, may not even get their voucher in time. The list started forming on Sunday after the $1.34 billion funding limit set by Congress was met.
The agency will send out coupons to those on the list only as unredeemed coupons currently in circulation expire.
