Are antenna's needed for LCD tv's?

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

I have a tube TV and want to buy my first LCD tv. For over the air reception, are antenna's needed for LCD or LED tv's? Or do they all have a built in tuner to receive broadcasts?

Yes, you need a bunny ears to attach to the co-ax connector. Don't pay extra for any gimmicky stuff.

I think some have a built-in antenna but you'll probably need an external one anyway to get more adjustable reception. I bought mine a few years ago at Radio Shack. As Dust Mite Rodeo said, don't pay a lot for a fancy one, they don't actually have better reception.
