recently announced plans to sell DTV-to-analog box online for just $59.99. The converter box called the DTVPal, allows analog-only TV sets to continue to receive TV signals after the digital television transition act goes into effect February, 2009.
According to a recent post on Broadcasting Cable, the new Dish box would help viewers who might get the Dish satellite service but receive their TV-station signals over the air (Dish does not carry local TV stations in every market).
Analog television owners that subscribe to Dish Network but want to use their $40 digital television converter box coupon, can get a version of the cable box directly from EchoStar for about $39.99.
The Dish box currently available is the DTVPal, with the analog pass-through capability that will allow viewers to watch low-power stations and translators, which don't have to switch to digital in February 2009. The DTVPal can be an analog TV's friend for $59.99, or $19.99 with a coupon.
Do you have Dish cable service? Do you still have an analog television? Have you received your digital conversion box coupon yet? Let us know.
