Using TV without Xfinity box

I want to not use cable on my second TV.  Is it possible to get just basic TV,ABC<CBS>NBC.etc

without the Xfinity box on just this TV?   Would really appreciate advise.

You would have to connect an antenna, assuming your TV had a tuner.

Every TV needs a device to receive cable service.
