Okay, Im getting ticked here. Now that the turnover time is getting close for all digital tv, the Buts are coming. You will need the convertor box but......you may also need one or two good antennas. WE have satellite on all but one tv. This tv is in the dining room as is for my local channels only so we got a digital box. I have it all set up to recieve the channels in Feb. but now am not sure if our antennas are enough. They probably are for me, but what about other folks? What about people that can't afford to do all this stuff? Antennas arent cheap. Will the gooberment give a coupon for those too? NOPE! I may be looking for things to gripe about since I have cabin fever but this makes me mad!!!!!
