I have a GE 35" television model # 35GT695.
I have it connected to an outside antenna on my roof.
In February 2009, when all TV transmission goes digital, will I need to buy the converter box to continue receiving signal transmission via my antenna?
Does this model have a digital tuner?

YES! the antenna will plug into the same spot the cable wire is connected too ( you may have to buy a adapter for $1.00 for the the antenna wires to connect to back of your set available at any wall-mart or radio shack) And since your switching to antenna you will need to buy a digatil converter box in FEB to get antenna TV!

As far as I know, this set DOES NOT have the required tuner capability. Please note that the changeover only effects those using rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If you have cable or satelite, no change will be seen. The change over is from an analog broadcast signal to a digital one. Your set has a digital tuner that expects an analog input signal.
No, unless you are receiving over cable or satellite. You will need a DTV converter box if you are using an antenna to receive Over The Air television signals. The Proscan has an analog only tuner, so the ATSC (digital) signals will not be visible. tom
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.
