You will need a converter box if you do not have a digital ready television. If you have a digital television, then no you do not need one. make sure of the type antenna you have, as there are uhf only and vhf only and combined uhf/vhf. if you only have a uhf only antenna you may be missing out on channels.

My area went to hd tv and now i can't listen to the tv stations


You can purchase a converter box that will allow you to pick up the digital broadcasts.

This should only apply to you if you were getting your tv shows over the air with an outside antenna.

If you do need the converter box, you have until July 31 09 to apply for a $40.00 coupon that you can use to help offset the cost of the new converter box.

You can apply for the coupon at this website https://www.dtv2009.gov/ which also has a lot more information related to the digital conversion.

GE Spacemaker TV/Radio combination Model #7-7650


Yes, you will need an external antenna to pull in the digital signals. It will not work with the built-in antenna on the GE. Alternately, you can use an external antenna (ie, rabbit ears), connect them to the converter box, then connect the converter box to the antenna jack on the back of the TV (I think it has one). Granted, not an elegant solution for a kitchen TV, but it beats not using it anymore.

Do I need a converter box to receive digital


The need for a converter box depends upon where you get your signals. If you have cable or satelite or anything OTHER than an antenna, no box is needed. The conversion to digital is for the over-air broadcasts only. Nothing else is effected.

Digital signal conversion


If you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS, the coupon eligible converter boxes aren't needed and aren't useful with those services.
They gov't coupon converter boxes are only good for reception with a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears.

According to the specs on epinions.com, no, this TV does not have a digital tuner. So, if you use a rooftop TV antenna (not satellite dish) or an indoor TV antenna, you WILL need an ATSC to NTSC converter box. You need not wait until next year, however, as most U.S. TV stations are also broadcasting digital (ATSC) now.
