Brand new TV with no coaxial port and/or no digital tuner built in
In order to use a TV missing the needed elements you can purchase a digital converter box. This allows you to connect your antenna to the television AND they have built in tuners also. A digital converter box connects to your TV via HDMI or other means (make sure you know which connection you need before you buy) and allows the TV to receive digital TV signals. A digital converter box is a one-time purchase with no monthly fees. One converter box is necessary for every TV that doesn’t have a built-in digital tuner and that receives its signal over the air with an antenna. Congratulations on the new TV but you need one more thing to pull it all together. A digital converter box.
