Not all cables are the same!  Cheap cables often don't carry the signal with the same strength and quality, which can result in poor sound or image reception.  We guarantee our cables to exacting specifications designed for PC to TV connections -- in fact, we've sold 1,000's since 2003. 

It's easy and affordable to connect your TV to the Internet. Just use your PC and one of our high-quality PC to TV cables.

It's time to bring the Internet into your living room.  Almost all new televisions available for sale today are of the flat panel, high-definition variety. You just can't find the old tubes anymore. HDTVs are also commonly known as LCD or plasma TVs depending on the screen construction. Most of these new HDTVs are equipped with either HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) and/or "PC Input." PC Input is another word for the standard computer VGA monitor connection. Almost all PCs have VGA outputs, and many new PCs are now equipped with HDMI outputs. So if you are considering the purchase of a new HDTV, make sure it has a "PC Input" jack. And if you are considering the purchase of a new PC, make sure it has an HDMI output. You can easily connect your PC/laptop/notebook computer to your HDTV with our HDMI cable or specialty VGA with Audio cable and use it as a high-resolution monitor. If you have an older TV you can probably use our specialty S-Video with Audio to Composite cable. If your PC has an Internet connection, you will now have the Internet on your TV. Our HDMI and VGA cables both support high definition video (1920 x 1080 pixels) while our S-Video cables support up to 704 x 480 pixels (standard definition). All of our specialty PC to TV cables also include built-in stereo audio, so you won't need a separate cable for sound. Please note: you don't need a set-top-box (STB) such as the Roku Netflix Player or Apple TV to watch movies on your TV. Simply connect your PC/laptop/notebook computer to your TV with our inexpensive cable and you won't be limited in where you can go or what you can do.
