How can i pick up digital cable channels without a cable box?
get a HD antennna. sears.com
YOU HAVE TO USE A OFF AIR DIGITAL ANTEENA TO PICK UP YOUR LOCAL DIGITAL SIGNAL ONLY. NOT THRU A CABLE WIRE BECAUSE YOUR TV IS SET UP IN THE CABLE MODE TO RECEIVE CABLE CHANNELS ONLY, NOT DIGITAL SIGNAL, SORRY THAT'S HOW THE CABLE COMPANY MAKES THE BIG BUCKS..GOT TO HAVE A DIGITAL BOX
If you subscribe to digital cable, you should be able to get all the "clear" (unscrambled) channels through your TV (including locals).
If you need to get premium channels, you will need a TV with a Cablecard reader and you need to get a cablecard from your cable provider.
Contact your cable provider as to whether you can get local channels without a cable card.
