No,as a tv alone only for recieving a free AIR DTV signal broadcasting signal tv channels.This tv is an analoge tv.U must hookup to any analoge tvs to a box that called a Digital Converter box to used to recieving free AIR DTV broadcasting signal for channels.U still can used it for any analoge tvs if u have a pay tv signal broadcasting channels services.
any televison that is "digital" ready can get local broadcast channels, you don't indicate what type of set (make and model) you have. but either way you need to put up an outside antenna that can recieve the digital signals.
Yes you need a digital converter box. Your model has an NTSC Analog Tuner. It doesn't have a Digital Tuner. This is why you need the converter box.
For example, many companies like Comcast or Time Warner or TCI etc used to broadcast Analog Signals through their wires. Now they have broadcasted only Digital Signals. This makes either your TV Obsolete as a Tuner or you have to get a digital converter so your Analog TV can receive the signal.
Depending on your service, it may be worth your while to get a TV with a digital Tuner.
Then again, it also depends on if you are connecting a box receiver to your TV. For example, if you have Directv or Dish, you would then use your standard Video/Audio or Composite Cables to transmit your signal OR your Out to TV Coaxial whichever works for your receiver. Some receivers have already built in converters . You should really consider all the factors to decide and determine it based on the type of service you have or want.
Your TV does not have a digital tuner. You'll need a converter box for digital broadcast reception. Remember that if you're on a cable system or using a satellite receiver, your TV doesn't need to have digital tuning. It's only if you want to watch off-the-air broadcasts that you'll need the converter.
You have a really nice TV, you have a built in ASTC tuner(digital).
If you want to recieve OTA(over the air) signals, all ypu will need is an antenna.

depends if you have a cable service. Cable companies will still broadcast in analog because they are a closed system same with sat. only other way to tell if you have a digital tuner is by one a cable/satalite card or when doing the tv programing it asks digital?
This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009, to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the U.S.'s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.
HD ready does not mean it has a digital tuner.
don't know what TV model you have but any TV with a coaxial connector will receive the analog broadcast. However; if your TV is not equipted with a digital tuner, you will need a set top box when analog broadcasts stop transmitting in Feb.
Hey barfinkl1, "Digital cable ready" TV's have a built-in feature that allows them to receive both standard and high definition signals, typically through the use of CableCARD technology instead of a set-top box. While this specific Samsung model (HL61A750) is not digital cable ready, it does feature both an ATSC and Clear QAM tuner. This means that it should still be able to receive locally broadcast and unscrambled over-the-air digital signals, but will require a set-top cable box to receive any kind of scrambled digital signal. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead. Use Us.
