Can the timer be set to turn the TV on at any given time of the day? Like using it to come on in the morning as an alarm clock to wake you up to your favorite TV program?

It depends on the TV. We need more details. You can do it with an away timer, and older analog tv. Set the time. PLug the tv into it, and pull the on off to on! But then again, that is technology that is 30 years old!

We need details to let you know if you can do it with your tv!
We are wanting to purchase a new TV, but want one that can be set to come on daily at a given time to wake us up, usually to the weather channel. Old TV had that capability but we can not find any of the new ones that provide that luxury.

Do you know if there are any with that option available?

You are best to go to a retailer, and speak with a salesperson!

@Sam -how is a timer to turn ON a digital tv? It is not like we can pull a switch, and it is on sitting on waiting for power. Things don't work like that anymore! All you did was repeat my first suggestion (offered as a joke)! Plese re-read the post, Sam!
Thank you for your help. None of the local retailer's know anything about the products they sell. They just tell us that they "don't think the TV's do that any more". Seems to me if they have times they certainly must make some that are capable of coming on at a specific time of day, on a daily basis.

Thank you so much you were much more helpful than our local retailers.

Ok, I have been told that Sony has these models:

and

This one.

I have researched the specific requirement that you have asked for. Please do your own research now that I have given you a direction.

Have FUN!
