The migration to digital television is clearly in full swing now. Best Buy has stopped selling analog televisions. Best Buy is the largest retailer of consumer electronics in the US, so it is significant when they drop an entire category of product. Best Buy will also be participating in the NTIA DTV Converter Box Coupon Program, with eligible converted boxes in stores in early 2008.
â€œWe are committed to helping people understand the digital television transition, and exiting the analog video business is one way we can help avoid confusion,â€ said Mike Vitelli, senior vice president of electronics for Best Buy. â€œCustomers can now be sure that any television they purchase at Best Buy will be fully compliant with the digital television transition. And for customers who arenâ€™t in the market for a new television, we can help you find the best solution to meet your needs.â€
