who sends date/time?

I recently purchased a Vizio E480i-B2. Signals are received with an attic antenna 40 miles from Riverview FL tower [Tampa broadcast area] Signals are strong with no drop out. Problem is with receiving and keeping the correct date/time. While on any channel, date/time drops off and reverts to January 1, 1970 midnight. If the TV is turned off, then back on, correct date/time is shown. Sometimes when changing channels, if it is the correct date, the time may be off by a few minutes and it takes a second or two for the correct time to fix itself. [Channel #, name, program name and info is always correct]
Is the date/time transmitted separately by each station or is there one entity in a local area that does it?
I'm thinking there is a problem with the TV date/time circuit receiving/keeping the correct date/time. Vizio tech support told me that the TV is a 'smart' TV and I should be getting the correct time from a router/modem. I only bought the TV because it is 48" 1080 120 Hz
