Will my TV still work?

In 2004 we bought a Sharp TV (model 25R-S100) with energy star rating. Will it work after Feb. 17 or can a converter box keep it working?

Mr. Cimprich,

The Sharp model 25R-S100 is a very nice Analog TV and has only an analog tuner built in.  After February 17, 2009 you will need to purchase a Digital Converter Box if you plan to receive off-the-air broadcast signals.  If you are a cable or satellite subscriber,  your set will work just fine.  Of course, since the screen on the Model 25R has a 4×3 ratio any wide aspect digital programs will be rendered in a letterbox on your screen even with the converter.

Hope this helps.
