April 17th is DTV day. Local retailers around the country such as New Mexico, New York, Minneapolis, the San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Philadelphia, San Antonio and Kentucky will participate in an unusual national campaign led by the community organizations of the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net) to offer a "no cost" converter box option to consumers presenting NTIA coupons. These converter boxes aren't free, but they will cost no more than the amount of the coupon, thus demonstrating a significant commitment from retailers to play their part in ensuring a socially responsible digital television transition.

A no-cost converter box is not a new concept. Since October 2008, freeTVsignal.com has been the only certified retailer offering a no-cost converter box with free shipping in exchange of the $40 coupon. Over the last 6 months, freeTVsignal.com has helped over 50,000 Americans get a no-cost converter box.    

Those that are unable to make the event on April 17 will not be left in the dark. "All Americans should be able to watch free TV. Everyday is April 17th at freeTVsignal.com. You don't even have to leave your home to receive a no-cost converter box." said Matt Bymaster of Cerebral Cortech. You will be able to get a no-cost converter box until September 30, 2009 by going to http://www.freeTVsignal.com or by calling 561-572-2164.

To help people find retailers that offer a no-cost box with free shipping, Digital Coalition, an out reach program to help people get converted for free, has created digitalcoalition.org. "We've created the web site to help people get through the digital transition as easy as possible with no-cost to the consumer", said Josh Nelson President. Furthermore, digitalcoalition.org allows people who have extra NTIA coupons to donate them to their favorite charities to help people in need.
