I have a question about my need . I have direct tv.

Customer Question

I have a question about my need for cable. I have direct tv. I subscribed to cable in addition to direct tv so i could get local channels. Now locals are included in direct tv. I have a tv in my kitchen but don't have a receiver for it and have been using
cable to get local channels in kitchen. (That's all I ever watch in the kitchen ). Can I stop my cable subscription and still get local channels on that tv? Use rabbit ears or a converter? Its a Philips TV model 19PFL3504D/F7

Hello, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
Philips 19PFL3504D/F7 has built in ATSC tuner so it should receive local air channels through antenna, please check following link to download TV user manual copy which will help you to run auto channel scan option once TV hooked to aerial/antenna to scan available local channels..
I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

So I need to purchase rabbit ears? ( The tv sits under the cabinet on the granite countertop.) Not sure they would work from there. Plus I don't want to clutter the counter anymore than necessary. Could you recommend a product(s) that would meet my need for local channels with this tv please? I also have a magnavox MDR513H/F7 I used to record from kitchen tv. I unhooked cable from wall but I wasn't able to get any reception with this. (I assume its hooked up correctly?)

Please try following amplified antenna for better channel reception..
and regarding magnavox MDR513H/F7, please post another question in "recorder and player' category to assist you further.
