Philips Magnavox model TP3281C101 do i need a digital converter

I have a Philips Magnavox TV model TP3281C101
Do I need a digital converter when the nation goes all digital in June? On the back where the model and serial number label is located, the label says it's a DE television.
I called Philips and although they tried to help they did not have the information.

Thanks for your help.

I believe that TV is about 9 or 10 years old. To confirm, there should be a Date Of Manufacture sticker on the rear of the TV.

If my dating estimate is correct, and you are watching TV using an antenna, the answer is yes.

If you are watching satellite or cable, the answer is no.
