How come our new HDTV does not get as many channels as our old TV?

by on November 30, 2012

Q: At my house, we watch tv with an antenna. On our old tv hooked to a converter box, we got about 10 channels. We just bought a new HDTV and are only getting two channels (1 of which is HD). We hooked up our old converter box to the new tv and have all our channels back but no hd. What can I do to get the channels in HD?

    Most of the local channels are not HD, unless you pay to get them. In our area our signal is in 480p. Try looking around in the settings of your TV, they might have an option to change it.
