Your response is very helpful - can you please clarify if your answer is relevant only to the built-in tuner or to the cable decoders?
In Israel you will need a decoder even for open channels (all channels are now digital). In addition, there are 2 major TV providers one is a cable company and the other is a Satellite based company. Both require the use of a dedicated decoder that connects via HDMI to the TV. Other services include streaming companies similar to Netflix. Those could be accessed via devices such as AppleTV.
If I understand your response correctly, you are referring to a built-in tuner in the TV but assuming there is a dedicated decoder attached by HDMI - is this still an issue?
