You have to get a signal from somewhere. Self-contained in the RV - no external signal needed - are DVD, Blue-ray, and video cassette players. External sources come via antennas for broadcast TV stations, coax connection for campground furnished cable TV, or satellite dish for cable TV (Direct TV or Dish TV).
If the campground cable or satellite dish has digital signals, a digital converter box is required to decode the signals for the TV. If the TV is analog, a converter box is required for broadcast TV - all broadcasts are now digital. If the TV is digital, it can receive broadcast TV directly from the antenna. A better antenna will give you a stronger signal at a longer range from the broadcast antenna (typically 100 miles maximum).
A satellite dish (digital or analog) will always need a satellite receiver to change the frequency of the signal from the satellite to normal coax cable frequencies.
hope this helps
