You've heard about making sure your TV is DTV ready by February.
Now you have a chance to make sure it is.
This Thursday, January 15th, 2009, all local TV stations, including NewsWest 9 will be shutting off their old signals at 6:55 p.m.
If your favorite program is still on, then you are good to go.
You do not need to do anything.
But, if you see instructions on your screen, then your TV is not ready.
That means you'll need to buy a converter box.
