No, your TV has a built in digital tuner that is capable of tuning both over the air (terrestrial) and un-encoded digital cable signals.
Note when connected to cable:
The digital cable channels on your TV may have a different channel number than if you were using a cable box.
Your TV may not receive all of the channels that you would otherwise get with a cable box such as premium or other channels requiring an additional subscription.
