Funds may run dry for DTV coupons

Posted:

(KWWL)-- Funds for DTV coupons may run dry before the big switchover on February 17th.

The government program is providing $40 vouchers for the converter boxes needed for analog television sets in order to function when stations switch to digital transmissions.

Available funding for the project was just more than $50 million, but current projections estimate that will be higher.  

Officials predict they will reach their mark in early February.  The coupon program is scheduled to end March 31.
