Yeah, you can get on the list, but the problem is that you won't get your coupons before the 17th of February. Do you think people will just go buy a converter outright without the coupon, knowing full well that a coupon will be on its way in a few weeks? This will be an interesting social experiment.

"...Or Congress could approve more money for the program. The NTIA estimates it could distribute up to 56.5 million coupons with an additional $250 million in funding, or up to 60 million coupons with another $330 million in funding."
