Big Switch Minute: Converter Box Donations

WILMINGTON -- Converter boxes are the key to make sure TV viewers with an antenna can still watch their favorite programs after the September 8 big switch.

This is a big issue in nursing homes where residents don't have cable.

Now, the Consumer Electronics Association is coming to the rescue.

The industry group is donating dozens of converter boxes to nursing homes in the Wilmington area.

The donation is much more than just the $50 box.  It will give seniors a window to their world.
