Dealing With Old Televisions
By Yvonne Jeffery, Liz Barclay, Michael Grosvenor

The same places that recycle computer monitors in your area likely recycle televisions, too, because their technology is quite similar. If you can't find a charity or friend who needs your old television, drop it off at your nearest electronics recycling center.

You may have heard about the switch from analog to digital broadcast television; essentially, after February 17, 2009, all full-power television stations will have switched from analog signals to digital. The switch will affect you only if you have a television that's not hooked up to cable or satellite television services. If you have a television that receives free signals over the air with an antenna, you'll still be able to use your set, but you'll need to add a digital-to-analog converter box for $50 to $70.
