1) If you would like to connect to TV through the traditional TV antenna. Please consider getting a TV Tuner / Media Player below:
TV Antenna cable is to be plugged into the Coaxial plug input port at the back of the TV Tuner and a HDMI cable should be be connect from the back of the TV Tuner to the Projector HDMI input.
2) As discussed above, if you do not have a working TV Antenna but have very good internet, the second way to connect is through a Chromecast or Apple TV.
