Ooops i didn't know, there isn't a hdmi port on the imac
You can use the Thunderbolt port and a Capture Card to connect HDMI devices such as a Sky Box/Console. Check out the Avermedia ExtremeCap U3 - although it may be just worth purchasing a new TV considering the outlay.

I can't see the point in buying such a beautiful display and then worrying about why you can't display a low resolution image on it. If you only need HDMI / 1080 / TV quality just buy a cheap TV for peanuts.
