    As with Flo TV, you need a subscription service to use the TV. Is this the same way? If not, how do you know that there is available satilite in your viewing area?

    I've had this TV for about a month now and was not sure I was going to keep it. However even though the sound is tinny and the channels sometimes fade in and out I think it is worth the sixty dollars I paid. The antenna wire is about four feet long and since I have a window close by it does help bring in the channels. Currently I can bring in three channels that will generally not fade in and out. According to the scan of channels there are 57 channels in this area. As long as I can get the news that's all I care about as far as a TV. The on/off switch is on the TV and is difficult to switch since it is on the side and is small. The little remote control must be pointed directly in front of the TV to work. The remote does work good though. The picture is clear and the closed caption is easy to read.

    I purchased this TV along with a (walmart)RCA Amplified Digital Flat Indoor Antenna because I work were there is a lot of electrical interfarence due to wiring and it get's all the local chennels without any of the major problems that all the other guy's get. I also purchased a cheap pair of $20 computer speakers because it is noisy were I work and you can hear it perfectly.

    This portable tv from RCA has a good clear picture and an intuitive design. When setting it up though you might get a blue screen with the no/week signal message. To remedy this first power the tv on and then press menu. Scroll over to the magnifying glass icon and make sure it is set to receive signal over the air instead of "catv". Second, allow it to auto scan for channels to program what is available in your area. Finally, if you live in a marginal signal area a more robust antenna than the one that ships with the unit will pull in many more stations and boost the existing stations' signal strength considerably. Hope this helps!

    I drive an 18 wheeler and have to sit 3 0r 4 hrs sometimes waiting to get unloaded , I bought this TV to pass the time, and I'm sure glad I did ... The TV works well , I can pick up 10 to 20 TV stations, depending where your located at... Down by San Antonio I picked up 22 stations . . co0L I think the TV is well worth the money. The TV has a signal scan for local over the air channels, so if you move locations, Rescan the channels again , it also has a ADD CHANNEL scan , which will save your first scanned channels , and add any new ones it finds , which is good . I Like it , and 2 other truck driver friends said they are going to buy one too. It took a week to get it, shipped to my local store .. GOOD Job Walmart !

    Log onto this before purchase, http://www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps/ input your address or zip code and it will give you the digital stations and their signal strength for you. We have 11 strong stations at our hunting camp 50 miles from the nearest large town. Great value for the money. $60 on line, use ship to store, otherwise $80 at the store. Great Deal.
