Best Buy has been pushing out "surveys
" asserting that the vast majority of America still isn't prepared for the looming 2009 digital TV transition for months now
, but at long last the retailer is stepping up to do something about it. Similar to Circuit City's initiative
earlier this year, Best Buy is teaming up with NAB to host in-store DTV workshops in the 25 largest cities across the nation. The festivities will begin on the morning of November 17th in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami and a smattering of others, and of course, you can count on store employees coaxing you into buying a DTV converter box right then and there. Ah well, whatever it takes to get you prepared. Like an Eagle Scout.
