Can I view analog TV channels on an Android 2.3 device?

Is there any way to view analog TV channels which do not use a data connection on my Android 2.3 Micromax A75?

    I think you should download a relevant app that support the function of watching tv, or just log on to some website watching tv online.

    Simply put: the hardware to do this would need to be built into the phone. The phone itself would need a TV tuner and an antenna built in. Seeing as America, Canada and most of Europe have stopped using analog television altogether in favour of digital terrestrial television, it's unlikely this will be a priority for device manufacturers anytime soon.

    Further complicating matters: analogue TV works differently in different countries. So this device works in Korea:

    It may or may not work where you live.

    So, I'm sorry to say, you probably can't get analogue TV working on your phone. You may be able to buy a special phone for the job, but it will probably be hard to find.

      As mentioned in a link , in a thread of this blog ; such phone is allready available here

      Most digital channels are private with lot of sponsors and cluttered with promos and content is mostly hyped and spiced in favour of sponsors

      So analog channels are a welcome relief and if available without data connection is an added bonus

      It is nice and user-friendly answer,,,,actually I have used the app

      But question is free-to-air analog channels which do not require data connection(for eg. Doordarshan channel which does not
      require set top box or cable or dish antenna or even internet)

        I don't think there's anything like that. Certainly not in my experience. You can't get straight connection from your phone directly. I hope they do build something like that.

          Unless the mother board of your mobile has special chip and circuits along with an external antenna

          You cant view analog TV channels

          This feature is introduced in China mobiles

          Now spice, nxg Xfab pune company (importing from China and providing one year warranty too) has analog TV
