How Do I apply for the rebate in Canada

Tracy Lee

Thank you for all the knowledge contained on your web page. I uploaded the application to apply for my $40.00 gov't rebate for a DTV, however it would not accept it as it required a zip code not a Canadian postal code. Could U provide me with any info. on how to apply for the gov't rebate when I live in Canada.

Thank You

Hi Tracy,
Direct from:

7.Are all consumers eligible for the coupon program?

Yes, but supplies are limited. There are 22.25 million coupons available to all U.S. households. Once those coupons have been used, there are an additional 11.25 million coupons available only to households that solely receive their TV broadcasts over-the-air using an antenna. Households with TVs connected to cable, satellite or other pay TV service are not eligible for this second batch of coupons. Consumers can apply for coupons until March 31, 2009, or until the funds are exhausted.
Unless you have a U.S. mailing address, you won't be able to apply to the TV converter box coupon program. You can try to contact the coupon program directly at: to see if they offer any ideas or altenatives for Canadian households along the US border who receive US television programming.
