Somewhere in your apartment u should have:

just connect it to tv with:

then search for channels.

Or use your broadband using an tvbox from comhem or tele2 or what not, costs from 80kr and upwards depending on how many channels u want

(also you can return your antenna not needed in sweden, unless you live in the countryside i guess)

To get the free TV you need a digi box too.

Don't forget to pay your licence though ;-)

The 'big fat one' sounds very much as if it is analogue, and as such will no longer work, as Sweden is fully digital today. Using a separate digital tuner might well help for a while. The flat screen at a guess is digital, and could well operate, but it will depend upon the built-in tuner. A TV engineer should be able to put you on the right track there.

your old tv should work just fine with a digibox. You can search online or copying neighbours to see which way is best to point your aerial, but any aerial is fine, a specifically 'digital antenna' is not needed, it's just hype to sell more. Any bit of wire pointing in the right direction, connected to a digibox, then tuned in, will get TV on even a 20 yr old tv.

As the newer one isn't working, I'm presuming it tunes in, but finds nothing? I would suspect your new aerial is pointing the wrong way or something simple. I'm also making the assumption it's a TV bought in Europe, right voltage etc. with a built in digibox... if it has a digibox, then it should also have CI port on the side, for those who want to insert a card, for paid for channels.

Listen to badkarma.

If you live in an apartment building, you most often have access to TV through cable. No antenna or digital receiver is necessary. The signal from the cable outlet has already been converted to analog.

If your fat old Panasonic (GREAT pictures on those btw) has a Scart socket it will work if you get a digital box and connect that to a suitably strong aerial. You might though, if you set has several 'input options' need to tell it to take the signal via the scart socket. On a remote control or on the tv if it doesn't have one, this usually looks like a tv screen with a little arrow pointing into it.
Most apartments have an outlet for a signal though. An analogue one will use a normal coaxial cable and this can connect directly into the TV aerial socket.
While you are waiting, just log in to
Good luck.
