Hope for Digital TV Converter Holdouts - America's Fugliest TV Photo Contest

Pennsylvania, PA (PressExposure) July 21, 2009 -- Submit a Photo of Your Old but Still Working TV To FuglyTVs.com For a Chance to Win a Free 40-Inch 1080P Samsung Digital TV!

There’s one in every family: an old TV that’s big and heavy, in a cheesy wood cabinet with knobs and dials and no remote control.

“The June 12th Digital TV conversion is stimulating a big boost in sales of Samsung LCD TVs and plasma TVs”

Yet before you toss it to the curb, a digital snapshot of yesterday’s ‘old-school TV’ could be the winning ticket to a brand new 40-inch 1080p digital TV.

To celebrate the June 12 analog to digital TV conversion, BestBuyPCS.com, a leading reseller of high-end home theater products, today announced a photo contest to find America’s Fugliest TV™.

For a chance to win a new digital TV that doesn't require a digital TV converter, consumers can visit a special website, www.FuglyTVs.com to register and upload a digital snapshot of their old TV set.

A key requirement: the TV must display a picture from a current TV show to demonstrate it is in still-working condition. Complete contest rules can be found at FuglyTVs.com.

The winner of the contest, the TV set voted America’s Fugliest, will receive a brand-new 40-inch Samsung 1080p Digital TV courtesy of www.BestBuyPCS.com. Consumers can visit the site regularly to see the “gallery of shame” and vote for America’s least attractive TV set.

According to a recent report by Nielsen, 3.1 million US households are still not ready for this Friday’s digital TV conversion.

“The June 12th Digital TV conversion is stimulating a big boost in sales of Samsung LCD TVs and plasma TVs,” said Scott Aemisegger, President, BestBuyPCS.com. ”At BestBuyPCS.com we have a soft spot for people who’ve waited until the 11th hour to finally scrap their fugly old TVs. This contest is our way of rewarding the stubbornness of these holdouts!”

Consumers with a not-so-Fugly TV can still get in on the fun with a $100 instant gift on any 1080p Digital TV sold by BestBuyPCS.com until June 30th.

Editor’s Note: to find a local resource to recycle an old TV set, consumers can visit earth911.com/electronics/television/ or epa.gov/osw/conserve/materials/ecycling/tv-challenge.htm.
