    Basically, I've got a new TV (not smart) and I want to be able to watch content I view on my laptop (youtube, i-player) etc on my tv without having to buy apple tv.

    Is there a way and what cables do I need?

    you need to use a HDMI cable, if your current MBP has a HDMI port (the rMBPs have this).

    You'll need an adapter to go alone with the HDMI cable if you don't have the port

    For my needs I use Chromecast and Chrome browser. Works very well. And as others said, you can connect it to TV via HDMI cable.
