Question about GE 19GT243 19" TV
Do I need a converter box for this TV?
I have a GE TV purchased in 2000. Model 19GT240. I bought a converter box today, even though the salesman said I probably don't need it. I was told by Comcast tech support that most TVs ove 5 years old need a converter box.
What's the real scoop? Thank you.

Not if you cable TV, DirecTV, Dish network, or FIOS. The converters are not usable with those services.
If you use a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears, then, yes, you will need a DTV converter box. If so, I'd suggest getting one well before next February. Why? 'Cause the pictures are better, and you'll have access to "virtual channels", where broadcasters send more than one program on channels like 4.1, 4.2, etc. Also, if you have poor reception, you may need a better antenna to see the DTV signals. Better to know that before DTV is all that is being broadcast over the airwaves.

SOURCE: my ge tv digital ready?
Your TV is NOT digital ready. IF you do not have cable or satellite, you will need a converter box. If you do have cable or satellite you have nothing to do or worry about as the cable or satellite box will automatically do the conversion for you. Hope this helps
