NTIA Approves Two GE Converter Boxes for DTV Transition Coupon Program


Jasco Products Company, GE licensee of consumer electronic accessories, computer accessories, home electric products, and personal security and surveillance products, today announces the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has approved the GE Smart Digital Converter Box and GE Digital Converter Box as eligible for the TV Converter Box Coupon Program. This certification ensures consumers may redeem the program’s $40 coupon vouchers towards the purchase of GE Digital Converter Boxes at participating retailers.

“Jasco is excited to help consumers prepare for the February 17, 2009, digital television transition by providing two NTIA certified GE Digital Converter Boxes,” says Cameron Trice, Jasco Senior VP of Marketing and Product Development. “We are also taking the lead to help educate consumers on the digital transition through Jasco’s newly-launched micro-website,”

The GE Smart Digital Converter Box (22729; MSRP $59.99) converts over-the-air digital television signals for use with analog televisions, providing one of the easiest and most cost-effective solutions to prepare for the upcoming DTV transition. The converter box features an exclusive Smart Digital Antenna interface, which enables the box to work with the GE Smart Digital Antenna to automatically seek and lock the strongest TV signal available. The box also works with existing outdoor, attic, and rabbit ear antennas.

The GE Smart Digital Converter Box features an easy 1-2-3 step installation process and contemporary wave design not seen with other models on the market. The converter box also adds advanced features like Dolby Digital Surround Sound support, full television program guide with favorite show reminder, parental controls, sleep timer, selectable picture output, closed captioning, and multi-language onscreen display. The GE Smart Digital Converter Box is easily controlled using the included full-feature remote, and comes with online and call-in customer support service.

The GE Digital Converter Box (22730; MSRP $49.99) provides the same advanced features as 22729, except without the Smart Antenna interface. For educational information on the DTV transition and in-depth product descriptions, please visit Press photos,
