I sort of suspect you have the terms reversed - you are probably talking
about connecting a newer TV (with no coax input) to an older, analog cable
service.

Only a small number of TVs will truly not support analog signals - you may
have to use something to convert from coax to RCA (a tuner box) but the TV
itself will almost certainly support what you need. I have not actually seen
a TV yet that will not support analog, but I won't try to claim that one
does not exist.

What model TV do you want to get for mother dearest?
