I am replacing on older TV with a smart TV.  Do I need the box with the smart TV?

Do you mean the set top box? Yes you do. The tv is not that smart yet 😀

It depends.

Newer TVs will have a qam tuner, so you can view local channels.

And if the smart TV has apps for the channels, you can use those with your fios login to access a number of channel content.

Outside of that, yes, you will need a STB to view FIOS.
