TV Converter Program Runs Out of Coupons – washingtonpost.com

TV Converter Program Runs Out of Coupons – washingtonpost.com.


“Each household is eligible to order two $40 coupons, which expire after 90 days.
…a record 7.2 million coupons were ordered in December
…As of yesterday, 46.2 million coupons have been requested, but only 18.6 million have been redeemed, according to the NTIA.”

Another big waste of our taxpayers dollars. Subsidizing the television industry! Are there really 46 million people out there with rabbit ears that need these things or are they all waiting in line for their gov’t cheese? “i’m lactose intolerant but i need me my free cheese!”

Plus, Ive been waiting for this transition for 5 years as I’ve been waiting for more HD content to become available. The Gov’t has been pushing this deadline up every year since 2007 (i think) and all these last minute mf’ers are ordering their boxes in Dec!
