Can someone tell me what kind of channels you would get with something like this? It's so cheap and it looks pretty cool, but how does it get television channels? Sorry if it's a stupid question, but I would still like to know!

No tuner is specified, so it's impossible to tell. An ATSC tuner would be needed to get digital broadcast, but no mention of that was made. If it has an NTSC tuner, you might get the stray analog broadcast stations out there, if any are still on the air in your area. To answer your question-there is no way to know what it can pick up with the info provided.

I don't understand, then why would they sell something like this? Is that RF antenna supposed to be what gets the signal?

Here's a link to one of them http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...elevision.html

I would order it and see if it does pick up digital t.v.

If not send it back.

Looks like a nice little set!

It's 50 bucks, and the reviews said it doesn't pick up a lot of channels, I guess it depends on where you are. Thanks for your help, I appreciate it. It did look pretty cool, to me but I don't know anything about that kind of stuff.

Here's what I found out.

GPX TL909B 9-Inch Portable LCD TV

Technical Details
Digital & Analog Tuner
Cable Signal Receive Function
Built-In Speakers
Ac/Dc Power With Built-In Rechargeable Battery

Product Description
Gpx Tl909B 9" Portable Lcd Television gives you the ability to enjoy your favorite television programs anywhere, any time--in your home or away. Watch the morning news without having to get out of bed, or while sun bathing in the back yard. Does someone else have dibs on the TV room? Pull out your digtal TV, and you've got your own TV room. This handy little portable TV has a LCD screen that switches between a 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratio.

It has a built-in ATSC/NTSC tuner with detachable antenna enabling you to receive crisp reception of your favorite channels - even after the digital-to-analog switch in June 2009. Watch with others using the built-in twin speaker system, or plug your headphones into the included jack to enjoy your favorite programs without disturbing those around you. Note: Reception of over the air signal depends on your location. Lack of reception does not indicate a defective product, but merely a weak transmission signal. Try moving the unit to another location, or connecting to cable, satellite, external or an indoor antenna


What are the best GPX, LCD televisions?
