The Insignia NS-DXA1 is a DTV converter box that allows analog TVs to receive digital channels. On February 17th, 2009, all TV in the U.S. becomes digital, so analog TVs that receive over-the-air TV through an antennae will require a DTV converter to continue to watch broadcast TV channels. The NS-DXA1 is eligable for the $40 government DTV converter box coupon, which brings the cost down to $20.
The. U.S. government has a coupon program in place that allows each household to get two $40 coupons that can be put towards a DTV converter, such as this one. Each household can get up to two coupons. Coupons must be ordered from the government at the DTV transition website. This coupon effectively makes the cost of this converter box $20.
