If the TV set is marked as “HD compatible”, is it suitable for viewing HD content?
Not necessarily. Most normal TVs are “HD compatible”, ie. It just means that the TV is capable of displaying a HD signal (albeit in SD resolution). It is advisable to purchase a TV that is either “HD Ready” or “Full HD”. Look for a resolution that is 1280 x 720 or higher and also ensure that the TV has at least one HDMI input that is HDCP compliant."
