Thanks to Brandi Grissom's article

Households with incomes less than $25,000 per year are five times more likely to be unprepared than households with incomes of more than $75,000 per year

22.2% of El Paso-Las Cruces area households are unprepared for the digital transition

Just as we have been saying all along the most affected are those that can least afford it. Last week we took over 200 calls regarding DTV questions, the majority of the callers stated they let their coupons lapse past the 90 day deadline. Other issues of concern were people living in rural areas, or get mail from PO boxes.
PLUS now we are told you need an antenna as well especially if you are further out of the metro area.
If you know of people that have not ordered their DTV coupons, the best way to do so is through the website and remember they are only good for 90 days!!!
