What Televisions have Digital Cable-Ready (QAM) tuners? (compatible with CCC Cable’s new digital signals)
Due to the vast number of makes, models, manufacturers and date of production CCC Cable cannot provide a specific list of televisions or manufacturers that provide televisions with QAM tuners that would be compatible with CCC Cable’s digital signals but we have assembled some general information for your reference.
CCC Cable recommends consulting with a knowledgeable sales person who would be able to identify whether the television you are looking to purchase is equipped with a QAM tuner. You may also review the manufacturers specifications for the television as that will help identify the type of tuner the television has.
The majority of the following manufacturers televisions come equipped with a QAM tuner: Sharp, Sony, Polaroid, Toshiba, Emerson, Hitachi, LG, Samsung, Visio, Insignia and TCL.
The following are known to produce televisions that do not come equipped with a QAM tuner: Seiki, Element, Sceptre, HiSense, Proscan, RCA.
It is important to be cautious of the televisions that are priced very cheaply as manufacturers can save production expense by not equipping the television with a QAM tuner therefore allowing them to sell the television at a lower price.
It is important to note that these are just general guidelines and are not all inclusive.
If you already have a television with a digital tuner the best way to determine if you have a QAM tuner is to run the Auto Program or Re-Scan feature on the television. When this is complete if you have all the CCC Cable digital channels from channels 72 through 81, then your television has a QAM tuner. If you don’t have any channels or you have just a few channels, then your TV likely does not have a QAM tuner.
