4 Connect Cables

Only connect the power cable after all the other connections have been made. For the basic setup you'll need to connect the TV to an Antenna or paid Cable TV service with a coaxial cable. If you have to connect the TV to other devices, refer to those devices' documentation and further to the TVs manual to learn what cables you need and where they plug in.
