Some TVs have this, you get a small card from your cable company, it fits the slot and turns your TV into a cable box, you HAVE to PAY for this card and if you want it to support HD you pay extra.
If want HD the you get a HD cable box.
If you live close to a major city you can get OTA broadcast HD, just put up an antenna. John
I am planning on buying a samsung 46 1080p lcd television. I want hd tv but currently only have standard cable. I heard that instead of getting the digital cable or high definition box that there was a chip you plug in the tv. I dont know though if with this chip you can just make current cable hd or something or if that gives you digital cable in hd. I dont know if it even exists period.
Please help me out!!!!!!! I am new to the whole hd cable thing
