No. all flat screens have converter chip built in.
If you are having problems getting channels, make sure you go to the settings, and broadcast settings, and make sure it is on AIR for regular tv, or CATV for cable.

There are several ways to answer this question. First, let me begin with the Sony WEGAs are excellent TV's and have some great features and a very nice picture. However, the TV is an NTSC TV with no built in HD tuner.
Ultimately, yes, you will need a converter box to receive broadcast TV. However, this depends on where you live. There are a few markets left that have not switched entirely to HDTV broadcast yet. However, the switch in all markets is happening now and soon, NTSC broadcast will be all but gone (perhaps a few private rogue stations will continue w/ NTSC).
Now, to clarify, the $50 converter box is only needed if you intend to hook the TV up to an aerial antenna. If you have cable, your cable company will provide you with a cable box that will be compatible with this TV. Also, if you subscribe to satellite (DTV or Direct), these companies offer a variety of receivers that will output to a variety of TV's.
The $50 converter box is only designed to receive broadcast HDTV signals and convert the A/V into analogue (NTSC). The converter box will not improve your reception nor is it cable ready. In other words, if you have cable and are looking for a way around paying rental on a cable box, this will not work. Again, the $50 converter box will only work with an aerial broadcast signal (rabbit ears / rooftop antenna).
One last thing, the TV does have component video inputs. This does not mean that the TV is HD ready. However, it does allow for better picture clarity from video sources such as DVD, cable boxes (with component out), and / or DTV boxes (with component out).
Enjoy your new inheritance!
