Analog viewers redeem 16 million DTV converter box coupons

The Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) said Dec. 11 that more than 40 million DTV converter box coupons have been requested, and more than 16 million coupons have been redeemed.

According to Acting NTIA Administrator Meredith Baker, November was “the busiest month” for the government-sponsored coupon program, and “December seems to be even busier.”

Americans have until March 31, 2009, or while supplies last, to apply for up to two $40 coupons that can be used toward the purchase of government approved converter boxes.
