The digital convertor Box is needed when you have taken a cable connection with a digital option. This allows you to choose as many channels as you need and the number of channels will be more than on an analogue cable line.
So you must decide if you need a cluster of channels to select and choose, the digital wil help but the cable will be cheaper.
The dish to select a satellite requires a LNB with the decoder of the service provider.You must check the options available.
Hope you decide.

If your TV has the screw-on coaxial cable connection on the back, then you will not need a converter box. You can attach an internal or external antenna and have your TV scan for digital channels. The converter boxes are mostly for old CRT TVs with analog tuners or newer home theater "monitor" TVs which are being produced without built in tuners.

Will i need a converter box for this tv?


If you want to receive off-the-air broadcasts (i.e., you have no cable satellite system), then yes, you'll need a digital tuning adapter. This set has only an analog tuner.

If you are on a cable system, you might not need a converter box, but it depends on your cable provider. Some systems still offer basic cable service without a box, and you can see what channels you'll pick up with the TV set for "cable" tuning. Other systems require a digital converter box or "digital transport adapter" for any reception. You'll need to check with your cable provider to find out.

So you are telling me I need a digital converter for this TV to g


Who was not watching the months of public service announcements? You need a Digital-to-Analog (ATSC-to-NTSC) converter box to receive over-the-air (OTA) signals in most parts of the country. You do not need one for most cable and satellite box outputs--they are NTSC or HDMI. Some low-power, typically religious, stations are still analog. Note OTA may be high definition (HD) or standard resolution (SD) but will be digital.
To get HD on your HD set you must have OTA (HD TV tuner, not converter), cable (QAM TV receiver), satellite (HDMI or 5-wire RCA),or Blu-Ray with HDMI or RCA.

I have a Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 TV


You will need the converter if you are dependent on broadcast reception; in other words, use an antenna with your set. Cable and satellite sources may or may not 'go digital' at some point in time so if you are using one of these, check with your cable or satellite company. 
If you decide to buy one of the pretty, new flat panel sets, buy the converter and DON'T toss your Sony. Store them in a dry place as backups. The flat panel sets are crapping out all over so you might do without TV when it fails.

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

It only has the NTSC tuner. To recieve HD signals, you need to add a converter box.

Most cable and satellite companies by arrangement with the FCC still should work with the analog sets using their converter box without the need for a digital converter.

If all else fails, they do make for a nice computer monitor.

Is this a digital television? will i need a digital box with my television in 2009 ?


The "DTV ANSWERS" website says that any TV made since 2004, has a built-in digital tuner and will not require a digital converter box. If you currently receive your TV signals from your cable, satellite, or phone company, you won't need a converter box, even if you have an older non-digital TV. Only people with TVs made before 2004, will need to purchase a converter box, if they don't use TV signals from cable, satellite, or phone companies.
You might want to visit the RCA website, to see if they have a phone number to call, for any additional questions.
