No you do not have to use a HD cable box for the tv to work but if you do not you will be far far away from true HD resolution. You might as well keep your old CRT tv.

No, the TV works with or without the HD cable box. But the HD features are utilized better with HD cable. Having HD just sharpens the picture.

No. Smart TV's are usually equipped with both Ethernet as well as wireless Wi-Fi to connect to the internet. However you must have an internet service provider and a router (wireless if you cannot hard-wire the TV). A modem is used to connect your router to your ISP.
