Do you need to buy some kind of HD cable for a new HDTV?

We got a Sony Bravia brand new yesterday but the only thing that came with it was a power cable. Do we have to buy a HD cable seperate?

    Well your HDTV is capable of getting higher resolution from DVD players, like Blu-Ray DVD players, Xbox 360, Playstation 3. All these require a Hdmi cable that provides a higher resolution to your television. Some standard dvd players have a upconvert to HDTV meaning that can also provide a higher resolution to your HDTV using a HDMI cable as well.

    Other than that if you wish to get satellite or cable services they do offer the best in high definition channels as well as premium channels for a monthly cost. Otherwise if you don't to pay anything then just watch your television with your indoor or outdoor antenna and you will get your local channels for the air for free.

    You need a cable to connect it to whatever video source you use, whether it's an antenna, a cable TV or satellite box, video game console, blu-ray player, etc.
