Best Buy Stops Selling Analog TVs

PC Magazine reports: "Big-box retailer Best Buy said Wednesday that they had pulled all analog TVs from its store shelves, jumping on board with the digital TV transition. ... The company also announced that they will participate in the NTIA DTV Converter Box Coupon Program to help people purchase digital converter boxes for their analog televisions. Coupon-eligible converter boxes will be available in Best Buy stores beginning in early 2008, in time with the phase-out of American terrestrial analog TV broadcasts, which will happen on Feb. 17, 2008."

One more nail in the coffin of standard definition television (SDTV). Expect HDTV prices to keep coming down (hopefully).
