Over the air broadcast is in some form of digital signal, but may vary in quality. signals may be 480, 720, or 1080p. This is a 720p tv and will play ALL signals regardless of quality at its maximum resolution of 720p. 480 will be 480, 720 will be 720 and 1080 will be 720p. Your basic cable will work just fine.

You need to have a local television channel that broadcasts in HD, or DirecTV, or Dish Network, Most Cable Companies, AT&T U-Verse
You won't get HD with basic cable but the 720 LED on vivid blows me away with it's clarity
