How to determine if your TV has a built-in digital tuner.
A digital tuner allows a TV to receive digital television (DTV) signals broadcast over-the-air by local TV stations.
To find out if one of your TVs has a built-in digital tuner, check the owner's manual or the TV itself for one of these labels:
- integrated digital tuner
- digital receiver
- digital tuner
The following labels are not indicators of a built-in digital tuner:
- digital ready
- digital monitor
- HDTV monitor
- HDTV ready
TVs that do not have a built-in digital tuner will not receive over-the-air television unless they are connected to a digital converter box.
