Question New Apt with cable but old Sony Bravia won't connect

Aug 30, 2021
We moved into an apartment where cable TV is included. We have a Sony Bravia KDL-40S2000 TV (2005 or 6) that will not connect to their cable system. The provider is direct TV now, but I was told the only solution was to buy a new TV. Is there a converter box that we could purchase that will accept the signal? They have 2 local channels for the building that do come in. Supposedly, they have some converter box on the other end that allows this - making me think there must be something we could get that would convert the signal so this TV would work. Any suggestions?
