Analog TV is Ending in the USA

On June 12, 2009 Analog TV will be phased out in the USA. If you use a TV antenna with an older TV set and live in a border town, you will lose your USA stations!

The new digital signals look great and if you have a new TV with a built-in ATSC tuner, your old TV antenna or even a set of "rabbit ears" will receive the new digital channels. You might be impressed enough to say goodbye to your cable or satellite provider!

If you have an older set, you'll need a converter. For more info on these FREE digital over-the-air signals, and to see the other products we carry in this category, click HERE.
