Questions & Answers for RCA RCA Digital Flat Amplified Antenna

Question

Do I need a converter box in addition to this antenna if my T.V. is older?

I am looking to ditch the cable company. How do I get the best reception? Do I need an outdoor antenna? What about a converter box? Do I need that also? Would the indoor antenna work without a converter box if my television is older..about 10 years old?

If you have an old tv, you still need the converter, but if you get a new tv (which now you can get it for less than $100) you don't need cable, just connect this antenna, and you'll you'll enjoy many new channels, many of them not available on cable.

Old TV won't work with this. Yes, for old tube type TV, you will need the converter box for which government gave out $40 rebate cards.

To get the best reception you need to have an outdoor antenna but you can still get reception with only an indoor antenna. You do need a converter box IF your tv doesn't have a digital converter already inside. Most new tv's (2006-present) have the converter. The indoor antenna would not work without a converter box if your television is older (2000 and before).

If your TV is 10 years old it is most likely to be analog and you will need a converter box to convert it to digital. This would be in addition to the digital antenna. I would suggest pick up an inexpensive digital antenna and try that first to see if it works. If you do not have reception you may need to go to an outdoor antenna.

You just hook it up to the tv. It has a cable hook up that you attach to the cable output on the back of your tv. You do a channel search and it will memorize which channels you get a signal for.

We use this in the garage which has no cable hookup. The TV is older so needed the digital converter to receive about 15 TV station signals. Nice to ignore cable company. However, you will not have the selection of programming which is available when you purchase cable service.

We get enough stations in Our area with this that we cancelled our cable. You will need to decide which stations are important to you and whether they are available with an antenna. The product is inexpensive enough that it is worth a try.

Hint: We connected ours to the cable wiring in our house and all our TVs with digital tuning got the signal off a single antenna.

Depending on your tv you will need to either pay a cable fee if you don't have a tv tuner included with the tv or one of those digital tuner boxes. The antenna will allow you to get free channels that are in your area, but it does have to be hooked up to a tv with a tuner included or tv tuner box to get it free.

I was able to pick up a surprising 16 channels in the flat lands of Illinois. I plan on canceling my cable I am so pleased with all the channels I'm getting. It's like having basic cable and I'm getting all the channels I like and more. So don't need cable.

No. But I dare say that your basic cable will have considerably more local channels than this antenna will bring in.

I get quite a few stations without using the amplified circuit but it does improve if you plug in the transformer to activate it. In other words, the amplifier is not required for the signals to pass to your TV but it does help.

Yes, the signal booster does. Mine didn't work at all, but you can probably use it without the booster. Depends on how close you are to a tower whether the signal will need the booster or not.
