If your television made before 2009 you may need to invest in a digital converter. If you’re not sure of the age of your television you can check your manual for that information.

  • ATSC, it means you do have a built in tuner that will allow reception of digital television channels.
  • NTSC means you do not have the built in tuner and you will need a digital converter.  
  • If you’re still not sure, please call your TV manufacturer.


A digital converter box connects to your existing TV and allows it to receive free over-the-air 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. They are fairly inexpensive and can be found at electronics stores or online.
