Can I watch high-definition (HD) broadcasts on my television?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

For your television to display a HD broadcast, it must have an HD digital tuner. If it does not have an HD digital tuner, you will need to rent a digital set-top box that is capable of receiving an HD signal from your cable or satellite service provider. Also, to fully appreciate the enhanced picture quality HD offers, the television should have a native resolution of at least 720p or 1080i.

IMPORTANT: Model-specific information about the features of your television can be found in the specifications section of the instruction manual. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
