What else is required for a pre-2007 TV to use OTA?

Q&A from our 'Learn about OTA' series.

Almost all TVs manufactured after 2006 have a built-in digital tuner, or more specifically an ATSC tuner, for receiving over-the-air TV broadcasts. HD TV's that do not have an ATSC tuner, and older picture tube TVs, require a Digital Converter Box. The antenna cable plugs into the converter box, the box is then connected to the TV RF/Antenna input using coaxial cable.
