Hundreds of Thousands Still Not Ready for Digital TV

Sing Tao Daily, News Headline, Posted: May 29, 2009

LOS ANGELES About 250,000 families in Los Angeles are not ready for the DTV switch scheduled on June 12, according to Sing Tao Daily. On Wednesday, U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, U.S. Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard(D-Los Angeles), and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa made the announcement at the Boyle Heights Youth Technology Center. The federal government recently issued $12 million worth of $40 coupons to help offset the costs of purchasing a digital TV converter box. That amount is in addition to the $650 million worth of coupons that were already issued last year. Villaraigosa and Roybal-Allard encouraged Los Angeles residents to apply for the coupons. Locke said it is very important that every family has access to television.
