Analog TV Death Watch

According to this article Best Buy, the nation's largest consumer electronics chain, says it has pulled all analog televisions off store shelves. Flat panel and high-definition screens have taken their place. The Minneapolis-based chain says it told its stores to stop selling the products at the beginning of the month.

Beginning in February 2009, broadcasters plan to stop transmitting analog signals, although people with older sets can still get programming via special converter boxes, set-top box or direct satellite. After the first of the year, the government will be making available coupons that can be used to buy converter boxes. Best Buy will sell coupon-eligible converter boxes starting early next year.
