Legacy Receiver and New TV

I'm thinking of buying a new TV as mine is about 15 years old. I am a Legacy customer, however, with no desire to change my TV service because I already have high costs and the tiers offered don't include the channels/networks I enjoy now unless I go for the highest tier and I cannot afford $200+ a month with internet.

So, my question is, if I get a new TV will I need a new receiver? My current receiver is a Motorola DCX3200MRF, and I have had it for at least 7 1/2 years if not longer.

Thanks for any information and all feedback. 😀

    Hello @AgainToo !

    A new receiver would not be necessary, but depending on your current set up, you may need to switch to an HDMI cable if you are using a composite connection (the red, yellow, and white connections) on your current TV. HDMI cables can be picked up at no charge at your local Spectrum store, or they can be mailed out to you as well.

    @Renee_T Thank you for the quick reply. My current TV does use HDMI so that's not a problem. 👍️
