ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The analog television age is about to run out and so could the money to help you make that transition to digital.

Television will go to all digital on February 17th. Your screen will go dark if you get an over-the-air signal on an analog set.

You'll need a converter box that costs between 40 and 80 bucks. The government is giving out $40 coupons to help out with the costs but that $1.34 billion may soon run out.

Unless lawmakers allow more funding, customers may be put on waiting lists for coupons. You can request up to two per household by calling 1-888-DTV-2009.
