What's Wrong With My TV Morty? (or How To Survive the DTV 2009 Act!)

Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition 210155

As many of us know, in February of 2009, all television stations in the United States will stop broadcasting on analog airwaves and begin their broadcasts in the digital format. DTV 2009

Time for a new TV!

For those who don't know what this is all about, the government has mandated this move from analog to digital in an effort to free up broadcast airwaves for public safety communications and so that more airspace will be available to companies who provide wireless broadband services.

Anyone without cable or satellite hookup who owns an analog television will need a converter box to watch television. Coupon Available

Naturally this will present problems for some technically challenged people who just don't know how to go about the conversion process.

Houston, we have a problem!

Fortunately for you, my dear readers, I've included this video tutorial to help you through the process.

FANTASTIC!!! I think someone should warn Sears to hire extra security for the mad rush, similar to the Black Friday Walmart rush, on February 16th.

Craig- my friend Bob just emailed us that utube video. The scary thing is, Jeff and I can see it happening to us when the next wave of technology hits and we can't figure out the new "TV's" or whatever they're going to call them.
