      No this is not a powered antenna. It plugs into the TV with a coaxial cable. The ones that have an ac plug are boosted to increase signal.

        Answer

        Yes, the antenna goes with older TV's that are digital. If you mean older TV's that were manufactured before the digital tv mandate, then no. For older analog TV's you have to purchase a converter box and hook the antenna up to it in order to receive broadcast television.

            On the back of my HDTV is an "antenna in" port ("ANT IN") which you simply plug into. You will have to do some experimenting to find best location and positioning for signal reception. I played with it a few hours before I found the best spot. Mine sits in the corner of the top of the credenza next to my flat sccreen HDTV.

                My TVs only get local channels. I live about 40-45 miles from the tower and have no problem picking up ABC, CBS, Fox, along with public TV and several other channels - about 29 in all.

                  Answer

                  You can connect the antenna to the coax port on your TV and make sure your cable TV is connected to one of the HDMI ports on your TV. then you can use both and just switch between inputs when you want to watch TV via the antenna vs cable TV. Of course - this is providing you have an HDMI port on your TV And your cable box has an HDMI port. Your cable provider can provide you with the HDMI Cable if needed.

                    Plug it in to the port you would normally put your cable cord in, then choose over-the-air option for source. It should scan on it's on for channels in your area. It only works on HDTV not analog televisions.
