Mom is 91, and can't/won't learn a converter remote. I'm looking for a 19" set that will pull in our digital channels without the converter box. - possibly Samsung UN19F4000. CNN or Spectrum just pulled the analog signal, and that's her favorite entertainment . . .
Don't know about other countries but here in England all our digital telly, both freeview and subscription services, comes through co-ax cable. It's all digital TV now, analog services were switched off several years ago.
Mind you, I don't see what your post has to do with the title you gave it - - lol
