Do I have connect the antenna to the Philips TV if I use HDMI connected accessory devices?

Published on 2019-09-10
  • If you are only watching programmes sent to the TV from accessory devices connected via HDMI, it is not necessary to connect the antenna

  • If you would like to watch programmes broadcasted via the antenna, you must do a complete installation of all programmes via auto-installation in the menu, with the antenna connected
