We've finally started seeing digital converter box coupons from the government in the wild in this area. Have you gotten yours yet? Already gotten your box? What do you think?

Haven't applied for them and

Haven't applied for them and probably won't because I will always be connected to a service provider. But, before you venture out and search call up the retailers to find out if they have them in stock. Both Circuit City and Best Buy and Green Bay have had short supplies, and generally only get new shipments in every other week. Walmart has had a steady stock, and their Magnavox unit is $10 cheaper than any other out there now. Although, Magnavox's unit doesn't allow programming the remote for you're TV so you'll be stuck with two remotes with that unit (one for TV, one for converter box). Also CC's Zenith unit and BB's Insignia unit are exactly the same except for the name and the packaging. Both are made by parent company LG.

TvBoy: From what most people say, Journal doesn't care much about NBC 26. So them spending money would be totally unrealistic. People will watch Larry, but not much else.
