Digital Transition Is Upon Us

Television in the U.S. as we know it will make a dramatic switch of sorts as we leave the analog era this Friday, June 12th. Officials estimate many Valley residents are still not prepared. But while many are scrambling for those much needed converter boxes. Those we spoke with today already have them in hand. Alma Gonzalez purchased two converter boxes 6 months ago. She tells us she did not want to wait until the last minute because she was afraid stores would run out and she'd be stuck without a signal. She has five TV’s in her house, but only got coupons to purchase two boxes. Our channel will stop broadcasting in analog starting at 1 p.m. June 12th. If you're one of those who are yet to purchase a box, you can still apply for that $40 coupon. Applications: www.dtv2009.gov or 1-888-DTV2009 (1-888-388-2009)
