Most, if not all flat screen TV's have a digital (ATSC) tuner. Here are the FCC compliance dates from "Wikipedia".


The Federal Communications Commission - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia@@AMEPARAM@@/wiki/File:US-FCC-Seal.svg" class="image"><img alt="US-FCC-Seal.svg" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/bf/US-FCC-Seal.svg/140px-US-FCC-Seal.svg.png"@@AMEPARAM@@commons/thumb/b/bf/US-FCC-Seal.svg/140px-US-FCC-Seal.svg.png has issued the following mandates for devices entering the US:[1][2][3]
  • By July 1, 2005 all televisions with screen sizes over 36 inches (91 cm) must include a built-in ATSC DTV tuner
  • By March 1, 2006 all televisions with screen sizes over 25 inches (64 cm) must include a built-in ATSC DTV tuner

If it has a tuner, it must have an ATSC tuner, but some "monitors" do not have tuners in them at all, be careful.

HDTV monitors are pretty few and far between anymore. Most that are left are multimedia computer monitors that have very unattractive prices.
