DTV Box Swap: Fri. June 5, 1pm-7pm at New Holly Gathering Hall, Seattle

2ND DAY ADDED: Sat. June 6, 11am-4pm at the Beacon Hill Festival, Jefferson Community Center, Seattle

One week from the day the nation will turn off analog TV for the last time, Seattle residents will get a chance to swap their government-issued coupons for a shiny new DTV converter box! Bring your valid DTV coupons and exchanger them for a converter box from Dish Network. In addition to the box swap, volunteers will be on hand to demonstrate converter box and antenna setup, and to answer questions about the DTV transition!

On Friday, find us at New Holly: 7050 32nd Ave S. in Seattle's Rainier Valley. On Saturday, we'll be at the Jefferson Community Center: 3801 Beacon Ave. on Beacon Hill. For directions or info, call 206.508.1277.
