All people using an antenna to watch TV, all people who do not subscribe to cable, satellite or other pay TV service. Now tell me this is not a way to help these companies make more money. Either you are forced to get one of these pay services or you are forced to buy a converter box. Either way you are now paying for your television service.

There are at least 19.6 million households receive over-the-air signals exclusively in their homes. 14.9 million households have secondary over-the-air TV sets in their bedrooms or kitchens. This means that nearly 70 million television sets are at risk of losing their signals.

Here are the options that consumers have:

* Purchase a DTV converter box for your existing TV set
* Purchase a TV set with a built-in digital tuner
* Subscribe to cable, satellite or other pay TV service, if that carrier offers the local broadcast stations you want
