Hdmi cable

please excuse my ignorance!
I have 12months free lightbox from spark and am looking for an hdmi cable however there a lots of different ones on TM to buy. What one do I need? spark wbsite says I just need an hdmi cable to hook my lappy up to my tv. It also says if I have a Samsung smart tv (which I do in the bedroom) I can hook that up but im not sure how.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Samsung smart TV would need to connect to your computer network via either wireless or wire (the structured cat5/6 cabling that you didn't bother getting) in order to use its inbuilt Lightbox app.

its not that I didn't bother to get it, I didn't know to get it. I have had a Samsung smart for 2 years now and only just got a free 12 month lightbox sub two days ago. Ive never used my Samsung tv as a smart tv so would it be possible for it to pick up my broadband connection when I switch it on? again, apologise for my ignorance but ive never had to use my tv over wifi.

Just go into the settings or whatever and it should ask you for your WiFi password after selecting it or just use a network cable if the router is close by (if you don't have cabling thru the walls).
