Thousands Receive Free TVs in Mexico

Thousands receive free TVs in Mexico as the government funds a nearly $1.6 billion program to convert the nation from analog television signals to a digital format. “Tomasa Lopez beamed at her good fortune: She’d just taken part in the world’s biggest distribution of free digital televisions. Lopez, a domestic servant, was among thousands of people who’ve thronged a cavernous tent in the populous working-class Iztapalapa district, one of hundreds of venues across Mexico where the poor are receiving some of the 10 million digital television sets the government is giving away at no charge.”
