Frequently asked questions

WHAT IS A QAM TUNER?

QAM stands for quadrature amplitude modulation. In regard to cable, it is the cable equivalent to an ATSC tuner and allows your TV to tune in to digital or HD channels.

DO TV'S HAVE QAM TUNERS BUILT-IN?

Many TVs made after 2006 come equipped with a QAM tuner. Most Emerson, Hitachi, Insignia, LG, Polaroid, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, TCL, Toshiba, and Visio televisions have built-in QAM tuners. Many economical brands such as Colby, Element, HiSense, Proscan, RCA, Sceptre, Seiki, and Westinghouse do not have QAM tuners.

HOW CAN I FIND OUT IF MY TV HAS A TUNER?

Check the manual or manufacturer’s web site, they might say something along the lines of “Built-in digital tuner (ATSC/Clear QAM)”. Also, if you notice that your television remote has a “-” or “.” buttons, your device likely has a QAM tuner, as QAM #’s are formated as 56-3 or 56.3.
