Need help with the transition to digital TV?

Today was the deadline for television stations to switch from analog to digital TV. For those antennas to grab a free TV signal, a digital converter box and UHF/VHF antenna are needed.

Cable users were not particularly bothered by the switch, according to Comcast and CLICK TV.

In Pierce County, help to make sure your TV works is available at Centro Latino, 1208 S. 19th St., in Tacoma. They have set up a table outside their office for people to fill out the application for a $40 coupon for the converter box and demonstrated how to hook up the converter box and antenna.

Their phone number is 253-572-7717 and help will be available there through June 30.

In South King County, residents should visit or call the Leadership Academy, 425 SW 144th St., Burien, 206-988-3760.
