      Greetings DSmith welcome to the Forum !

      First of all, you can not get a coupon for a Converter Box any more.
      They have closed that, and will not be issuing any more coupons.

      You will need a Converter Box, only if you have an older TV, which is not Digital.

      As far as how a Converter Box works...
      You must have an antenna (inside or outside) which picks up local Broadcast Channels.
      You hook the Antenna to the Converter Box, then
      The Converter Box to your TV.
      Do a scan for available channels,
      Then watch what is available at your location.

      You should know what is available where you are.
      In some instances, the cost of an Antenna, a Converter Box and labor for that, may not be justified by what you can receive,
      so, check what you can get first.
      In other words, you may be better off subscribing to/staying with a Cable/Satellite Service.

      Below is a link to help you with the...
      LookUp & Posting Instructions for finding your Free Local TV Channels

      If you don't presently have an Antenna, post your Chart as the instructions indicate, and we'll try to help you with that and the selection of a Converter if you wish.

      Have a good Day !
