    don't hold me to this but, if you are purchasing a new HDTV  it should come with everything needed inside if it has the tuner*
    mobo- MSI P6N SLI / LCD Samsung  226BW
    Ram- G-Skill dual HQ / Speakers- 5300e's
    Fatality Hi-Fi Soundcard
    cpu - currently ~ E6600 / Foxfire only
    dual~Seagate 320 gig sata's
    8800 gts- MSI /Verizon Fios

    Everything that I've read and understand says Hoventops is correct. All digital or HDTVs you purchase today will have the required tuner in the TV that allows it receive the signal properly now and in 2009. If by some chance you've purchased one of the earlier manufactured digital TVs it will actually state on the box that it does not have a digital tuner and that one will need to be purchased.

    I knew they were going to switch over but didn't know it was going to be so soon. I bet alot of people don't even know the date is so close. The old analog tv's last forever, its going to be tough on some people.

    Well was going to be earlier but has been delayed. However, I think this is a pretty set date and will not be delayed again. It is fast approaching and I believe you're correct Robert that most people are not even aware of it, which is why I thought it would be a good monthly poll.  :)

    Looks like Analog TV cable viewers may get some more time. According to this article cable providers must provide an analog signal until 2012.
