I have a freeview build into my tv which is Panasonic plasms tv Model no. TH-46PZ8BA and wish to know how I can receive HD channels BBC or ITV. Please advice and help.


HD Ready just means the tv can display HD images from an HD source.

The built-in Freeview box on your tv is not Freeview HD compatible so you'll either have to buy a separate external Freeview HD box or subscribe to an HD satellite or cable service.

In any case, most built in Freeview receivers are of barely adequate picture and reception quality. An external box is usually far better in both respects.

Is the rca true flat tv able to be used by putting up an antena -or will we need a convertor box ? currently we have direct tv and are thinking about canceling it and use an antena.


This model does not have a built in HD tuner (ATSC Tuner). You would need an HD antenna (that is a more recent antenna that receives UHF) and an HD converter box to get the newly broadcast HD signals.

No this TV is not HD ready. However it is digital (ATSC) ready meaning now that most of the analog brodcasts have stopped it will receive the digital broadcasts so you don't need a converter box. Since it can only display 480i resolution it is not HD ready. You would need a TV that can display 720p or better to be considered HD ready.

Is the is TV Digital or Analog?


if your grandmother has cable or satelite tv she already has a digital signal however if she justs gets her locals she will need a converter box. the goverment is giving free coupons for this or she can go to walmart and purchase a directv converter box for about $50 she will not have directv but the box will convert her signal.. the tv has nothing to do with the signal. she will not need a new tv.

Digital converter box


A digital converter box will only allow an analog TV to to operate in analog when using a stick antenna... If you have cable or sat Tv then you won't need the converter because those companies already do the conversion for you.
If you have a HD Tv than by all means it will get HD without a converter using a stick antenna and several stations are available or will be available on cable and sat with extra fees...
Hope this helps!

if the tv has a cable ready hook up then it can produce digital the trick is if your tv have satellite or a cable service then you don't need the convertor box but if you don't have none of these services then you will need a convertor box and if you have service provider and the service gets cancelled then you will need the convertor box
