new dtv/hdtv

clg7067January 12, 2009

I just got the converter box for my living room TV. The reception is so good I'm canceling cable today.

Now I want to buy a new tv for my bedroom. Because I let the other $40 coupon expire, I decided to just by a new tv. Question is, do all the new hdtvs out there have a built in tuner to receive air broadcasts? It's just that the specs always talk about the HDMI inputs and don't mention a tuner.

look at the model in teh store/online. if it has a coax conenctor it will have a built in tuner. if it does not, and only have RCA/HDMI, then it will not.

You need a TV with an ATSC tuner to watch air broadcasts.
