Formatting a WD Passport 500GB drive

I have a WD Passport and I want to format it to copy movies from my Mac Airbook to play on my HDTV. I have it formatted for MAC OSX Journalled at the moment but my TV won't recognise it. Can I reformat it to FAT32 and will it work then? Thanks for any help you can give me

You need to check the TV specs to find what formats it supports. Alternatively, you could connect your MacBook Air directly to your TV.
