The RCA DTA 800 is RCA's only DTV converter box. It allows analog TV's to watch digital TV. All broadcast TV in the U.S. goes digital on February 17th, 2009, at which point all analog TVs will need a DTV converter to continue to watch broadcast television. The DTA 800 is slightly larger than a paperback book and comes with a remote. It is also elligiable for the $40 government coupon.
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 $10.
