This antenna attaches by a coaxial cable cord. If you have a cable ready TV or a converter box with the coaxial antenna in / antenna out then this will work, if not you may need some type of adapter.

Question

Does this antenna pick up both UHF and VHF signals

I bought this product several months ago to use with my HD tv and I want to know if it pick up both UHF and VHF signals. I turned on my TV this morning for the new HD transition and the TV doesnot pick up any signals today. It worked yesterday with my HD tv before the transition took affect. What's wrong with it today, no signal is coming in on my TV now.

You may need to reset your channels on your tv. Check to see if you have it set right on the menu.

Using the remote, select the TV menu, select ANTENNA (not cable). Go to Settings...Channels...Program the Tuner. The TV may take several minutes to locate all the available signals.

It says in the description that it does pick up both types of signals.
I think you may need to rescan, you may also want to check out some websites that tell you the best way to position your antenna to get the channels available in your area.

It will receive digital tv signals if you have a convertor box on an old tv or you do not need a box if you have a newer HDTV and yes it has an attached cord.

I use it with a TV that has a built in digital tuner and I needed the antenna to pick up stations. I was shocked that it picked them up crystal clear. Except when a large truck drives by. But it does get them. And yes, there is a cord attached that you plug into the "antenna in" plug on your tv.

Signals must be visible to the antenna. They are also unpredictable. You will have to try it. If it does not work, return the undamaged merchandise to Walmart. Walmart has excellent customer relations.

Checking the TV channel scan with a antenna will delete the previous scan built into your TV. But you can rescan when you get a different antenna source or move to a different city. This TV antenna is best used in a urban area.

if you have a digital tv, it's plug and play. If you have an analog TV, there is no longer analog TV signal on air in the US, you'd have to buy a new TV or buy a converter(which is about half the price of a new TV it self)

If you have a newer television, you will not need a converter box as they have the converter built in, but if you have an older television, you will need a converter box.
