Are antenna's needed for LCD tv's?

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Are antenna's needed for LCD tv's?

I have a tube TV and want to buy my first LCD tv. For over the air reception, are antenna's needed for LCD or LED tv's? Or do they all have a built in tuner to receive broadcasts?

Yes, you need a bunny ears to attach to the co-ax connector. Don't pay extra for any gimmicky stuff.

I think some have a built-in antenna but you'll probably need an external one anyway to get more adjustable reception. I bought mine a few years ago at Radio Shack. As Dust Mite Rodeo said, don't pay a lot for a fancy one, they don't actually have better reception.
