A couple years ago, 'digital tv' became a thing. Now you have to have this box to even get basic cable. They got rid of antenna analog TV. It's no longer "oh the screen is all jacked up, slap the antenna." Now it's you either have service at this exact place on the counter or you don't. Boxes do have antennas but....let's be honest it's not the same.

Modern conditions.

Most of today's technology has left the old ways in the dust.


Over-the-air stations are mostly on UHF rather than VHF
and are hard to receive with a cheap indoor antenna.
Sometimes even an expensive outdoor antenna won't do it.

Cable providers almost always encode channels so that if you don't pay you don't get anything.
That results in the need for a cable box, which precludes the use of the tuner built into the TV.
Plus, there are far more channels on most cable systems than any TV tuner is made to receive.

Satellite services Always require a separate receiver,
and that is what is used to change channels.

Streaming (online) services all use set-top boxes and/or USB dongles.

Some recent TVs don't have tuners at all;
they depend on an external one.


I think what you are referring to is direct channel access.
That's what the number buttons on the remote are for.
Some TVs don't offer that any more because of the set-top box situation.


As annoying as all of this is, there is nothing you can do
to make things go back to the way they were 20 years ago.

The ones from just a 5 years ago did. You probably just don't know how to program it. The manuals aren't worth much these days. Everything is "online". They don't want to pay to print manuals. But they'll charge 100 dollars for a replacement remote.

It might allow manual programming
