Hey, Best Buy: We need analog labels, digital converters

March 28th, 2007

Best Buy is still selling analog TVs without labels warning of the switch in 2009 to digital broadcasts. The largest U.S. electronics retailer could hinder the DTV transition in another way, too: Best Buy declined, in Congressional testimony today, to commit to stocking set-top converter boxes in all of its stores.

If you buy an old-style analog TV from Best Buy today, you’ll need a converter box to continue receiving over-the-air TV after Feb. 17, 2009. But according to Best Buy, it seems, that’s your problem.

We need a labeling law.
