I have a early big screen TV without a coaxle connecotor. Comcast tells me the only way to use the TV is to buy their ON DEMAND box and pay them $9 a month. I dont give a flip about on demand service. I just want my TV to work without the extra monthly charge. I have basic expanded.
Need more details here. What's the issue? Your TV does not have the same connections as the cable box? What connections do the cable box have and what connections does your TV have?
Are you trying to use the cable directly without the cable box to just get the basic channels? If so, you need a coax connection on the TV or the cable converter box to get other connections.
