Target Hands Out Digital Conversion Boxes For Free

Jun 4 2009 - 1:35am

With the digital television transition deadline fast approaching (you've got until next Friday, June the 12 [1]), there are probably some last minute TV buffs who are still in need of converter boxes. For those who participated in the government's converter-box subsidy program [2], you can take your coupon into Target this week and pick up a box for free — even if the price tag is over $40. So if your grandma wants to be ready for next week's analog TV shutdown, make sure you take a trip to Target so that she'll be all set up and ready to go when the changes take effect.
