    In short, a HD-Ready TV is a real HDTV which displays the resolution it supports - usually 720p but new 1080p sets are coming out slowly but inevitably. These TVs have HDMI and all those features a TV needs to be granted the HD-Ready sticky.

    A HD-Compatible TV is a bit of a blurry thing, but in general it is a TV that will "accept" the HD resolutions, but will only display lower resolutions - generally 480p, like the cheapo plasmas you still find here and there. Careful with those.

    You really want a HD-Ready TV, which will grant you a few years of HDTV broadcasts and movies.
