Top 10 Best Cable TV Transmitters
for December 2022

If you've upgraded to a new TV, but you're not ready to give up your cable service, a cable TV transmitter may be the solution. These nifty devices let you watch your favorite shows on your old TV, even if you don't have cable.

The Different Guide tests cable TV transmitters for performance, such as how many channels it can receive, as well as ease of use, such as how simple it is to set up and use. We also evaluate each model's ease of installation, including how easy it is to install, whether it requires any tools, and if it comes with a remote control.

We test dozens of cable TV transmitters each year, including models from brands like Roku, Toshiba, and VIZIO. Our favorite model is the VIZIO 65" Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (M65-F1). Its 4K Ultra HD resolution gives vivid, lifelike images, while its 120" class 4K Ultra HD HDTV (E65-F1) delivers amazing picture quality. We also like its 4K Ultra HD TV (E65-F1), which offers 4K Ultra HD resolution and 120" class 4K Ultra HD HDTV (E65-F1).

Here are the best cable TV transmitters of 2022:
