When everything goes digital, how will I know if my television will work?

All televisions sold after March 1, 2007 include a digital tuner (by law) so you are good if you have bought a TV since then. If your television is labeled as �Integrated Digital Tuner,� �Digital Tuner Built-In,� �Digital Receiver,� �Digital Tuner,� �DTV,� �ATSC,� or �HDTV� then it has a built in device that will be fine after Feb. 17, 2009. If your television set is labeled as a �Digital Monitor� or �HDTV Monitor,� or as �Digital Ready� or �HDTV Ready,� this does not mean it actually contains a digital tuner. All this means is this TV is capable of handling the converter box. Thus, you still will likely need a separate set-top box which contains a digital tuner in order to view over-the-air digital programming.
