Washington, DC With only one day left until the digital television transition, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund (LCCREF) is sending the message that it is not too late for unprepared families to get ready for the DTV transition.
Here are a few easy steps to making a successful transition:
1. It's not too late. If you have your converter box coupon, use it today and make sure your box, television and antenna work.
2. If you don't have your converter box coupon yet, apply today by calling (888) DTV-2009 or visitingwww.DTV2009.gov. It typically takes about nine business days to receive your coupons, so you won't receive it in time for Friday's transition. You may want to purchase and install at least one converter box, if possible, to maintain access to critical emergency alerts and news. Certified, local retailers have a plentiful stock of converter boxes.
