HDTV Tuner Boxes

If your television does not have a digital tuner capable of recieving new digital broadcast signals, you will need to purchase a digital-to-analog set-top converter box. to watch over-the-air TV. These boxes receive digital signals and convert them into analog format for display on analog sets. Analog sets connected to such converter boxes will display digital broadcasts, but not necessarily in the full, original digital quality.

Federal Rebate/Coupon Program
The federal government initially subsidized consumer purchases of hdtv tuner boxes. However per the FCC DTV transition website,

"The Coupon Program is over. The last day to apply for a coupon or file an appeal was July 31, 2009. There are no more active coupons and retailers can no longer accept coupons for converter box sales. Some retailers may still be selling converter boxes without accepting coupons. NTIA and the FCC can provide no further assistance regarding coupons."

Even though the program is over, you may still purchase an hdtv converter box for far less than a new HDTV. Converter boxes typically cost between $20-$80.
