Summit Broadband delivers an all-digital signal. This means that every TV needs to have a digital (QAM) tuner.
- Most modern TVs (made in the last few years) have a digital tuner built in. This means that if you live in a property that offers QAM in the Clear programming, you can receive all the basic channels without having to connect a set top box or Digital Terminal Adapter (DTA) to a TV with a QAM tuner.
- If you want to watch premium channels (such as HBO, Showtime, or Cinemax), you always need to have a set top receiver or DVR on the TV, even if it has a QAM channel.
