“No, my TV doesn't have a digital tuner.”
TVs without built-in digital tuners will stop receiving broadcast signals in February 2009. You have three options to get ready for DTV:
Install a digital converter box.
A converter box connects to your TV and works as an external digital tuner, making over-the-air DTV signals compatible with your TV. A converter box is a one-time purchase with no monthly fees. Learn more, including how to install a box in the converter box area of this site.
Buy a new digital TV.
Most TVs for sale today are DTVs; they have built-in digital tuners that can receive DTV signals. Prices range from a hundred dollars to several thousand dollars depending on size, quality and features.
