June 12, 2009 marks the historic transition to digital television that was mandated by federal law. Consumers who did not prepare in advance have three options: purchase a converter box; begin subscription to local cable, satellite, or other pay TV service; or purchase a TV equipped with a digital tuner.
For reception or technical problems, call 1-888-225-5322 (1888-CALL-FCC)
To order a TV converter box coupon, call 1-888-388-2009 (1-888-DTV-2009)\
While supplies last, consumers may apply for TV converter box coupons through July 31, 2009.
