The broadcast systems look to be too different. Try some external tuner and connect over HDMI.

If analog OTA (over the air) or analog cable doesn't work, you have 2 options:
- see if digital OTA or digital cable works (either the free variant or the variant that needs a decoder in the TV)
- buy a digital box that has HDMI out and connect that to the HDMI in of your TV

Finding a local TV tech might be helpful, if you still have the user and technical manuals of that Angola TV.
