my tv wont play my cable channels


I'm not suggesting this topic be moved, but this kind of question would be better served in the Home Theater forum BTW.

"Normally" cable TV needs a cable box. Depending on the TV what you get by hooking the cable directly to the back of the TV will vary. The minimum would be only those channels between cable 2 and cable 13 that are non-digital and not scrambled and only when the TV is setup for NTSC (as opposed to ATSC). If the TV has a CATV tuner setting in addition to NTSC and ATSC then you may get a number of other unscrambled channeles.
