    Dude, no way you should pay $350 for a used TV.

    I bought a 40" 4k smart TV for $250 last year on black friday (or cyber monday or something), and that time of year is coming up again. You can get a faster, cheaper, higher resolution TV for less than they are asking for that old TV.

    But with regard to your question about cable I have no idea, because for the past 10 years or so I've only ever watched TV that is streaming or downloaded, so I've had no use for a cable... actually I lived in an apartment that gave me free cable and I bought a cable and connected it to my TV, but never actually watched anything on it even though I intended to. it's so inconvenient.
