Cables required:

But, if you have an Android smartphone or tablet then you can connect the device to the television by using micro USB-to-HDMI (High Def Multimedia interface) cable. You can get the details of HML supported devices on the website of Android. In some of the old TV, you may have to get an HML to HDMI adapter. Now, you will have to connect the power device charger to this adapter. For example Sony, Xbox work effectively when it is connected through an HD device. On the other hand, Apple iPad can be connected to a television with digital AV adapter. If you have Android tablet then things would be totally different. Some of the Android tablets will have HDMI slot. If the slot is not available then you can buy a micro HDMI cable. This costs just about $5.  At the same, you must also remember that some of the earlier versions of Android phones are also available with micro HDMI connection. This allows you to view the program directly without the need for any of the wireless devices. But, in latest version of Samsung Galaxy and HTC regular HDML cable is used. In such cases, you will need an adapter called MHL (Mobile High Definition Link).

Other devices:

Similar to the mobile, you can also connect your laptop to the television. For this you may require either HDMI connector or VGA or DVI connector of appropriate pins. This depends on the laptop you have with you. In some cases, you can watch the internet on the television and these televisions are Wi Fi ready. In such cases, you may have to use the USB dongle. This is a plug which is connected to the TV.  These adapter can be bought online or through any of the stores in your locality.
