  Over-the-air (OTA) digital TV broadcasting uses the same frequencies as analog TV. Consequently, many standard, outdoor TV antennas pick up OTA digital TV (DTV) channels with no problems.

To determine if your current antenna will get DTV broadcasts, you should find out whether your local DTV broadcasts are on VHF (channels 2-13) or UHF (channels 14-69). If your DTV channels are on UHF and you already get good UHF reception, your present antenna will probably work fine. The same holds true for VHF DTV reception. Note that in some markets, both VHF and UHF channels are used for DTV broadcasts.

Note: If your TV has a built in HDTV tuner, you can connect your antenna directly to your TV and receive OTA DTV.  If your TV does not have a built in HDTV tuner, but is HDTV ready, you must connect your antenna to a DTV set top box tuner or receiver such as the Samsung SIR-T451, SIR-T351, SIR-TS360, or H10S to receive OTA DTV. The set top box is then connected to your TV.
