— The deadline to get a coupon for a digital converter box is fast approaching.

Analog TV sets – those without cable or satellite service – need converter boxes to receive a signal. The coupons subsidize $40 of a converter box's cost, which can go up to $80.

Viewers can apply for a coupon until July 31.
