Testimonial: "then I will not need a converter box.... sounds better then the other response, great help"
You simply need an "F" connector to "Belling-Lee" converter. about $4.00. At any Radio Shack, Antenna shop. This screw onto the end of the existing antenna connection & makes it so you can plug it into the Socket at back of set.
I have included a link that has a picture.

You just can't. Not without an external receiver.
Your TV is simply missing a piece of hardware - it is called TUNER - that can understand the signal that runs through the cable (or an antenna) and decode it into simple video signal.
So the only solution is to buy an EXTERNAL TUNER device (also called external receiver or external set top TV box).
Those are rather cheap compared with what they used to be, but if you care for an advice from professional it is: sell your TV and use the revenue towards the purchase of a new one. All TVs currently in the mainstream sales channels have that thing built-in.
Some of the older models that you will find on Craigslist (like yours) do not.
it is usually not a problem for users with cable TV because most cable TV boxes also have a built-in tuner. If you are talking about how to connect your TV to your local cable company then the right thing to do is call your cable operator and tell them you want a newer receiver that outputs standard composite (one yellow one red one white) or component (green, blue, yellow and white and red) - if your TV has the later.
Hope this helps. If it does please rate accordingly.
