TV's switch to digital coming June 12

Friday, June 5, 2009

Beginning Friday, June 12, television stations nationwide will no longer broadcast programming in analog signal.

Those with older televisions who are currently receiving a signal through an antenna may need to install a digital signal convertor box.

One converter box is required for each television that does not have the capability to recognize digital signals.

Those who are "technically" challenged with electronics have the opportunity to have volunteers help them. RSVP volunteers, through Western Indiana Community Action Agency, Inc., will be available to help.

Simply purchase the number of digital signal converter boxes that may be needed. Once the required converter boxes have been purchased, RSVP volunteers will come to homes of those needing help to install the boxes.

This is a free service to low-income households or individuals 55-older.

To make an appointment, call the Service Action Network of RSVP at 812-232-1264 or 765-653-3011.

RSVP is a part of the Senior Corps administered by the Corporation for National Community Service, the federal agency that supports service and volunteering programs to improve lives, strengthen communities and foster civic engagement.

RSVP is sponsored by Western Indiana Community Action Agency, Inc., 705 S. 5th St., Terre Haute.
