    Over normal distances (say, up to 12ft) any "High Speed" HDMI cable will work. Just make sure it carries the official logo. If you want to order from Amazon, their "Basics" line works well, e.g.:

    If you need a long cable (e.g. to connect a projector in the back of the room), you might want to look for "premium certified" cables. They don't have to be very expensive either. I've had good experiences with Monoprice:

    Amazon basics HDMI cables work perfectly for me. I have them running from Sky Q, ATV 4K and Xbox into my AV Receiver and from receiver to TV.

    Seconded for the link to the spec above from Rigby.

    Using high speed certified at £3.5 with HDR only on mine, three foot cable. and bought one premium certified at £8 or so to see what was the difference. I would not buy the one from Apple. I have the high speed as I did not know about premium at the time of purchase but they work. That is they work on mine, HDR only.

    Whatever that is in $.

    Monoprice premium certified are the way to go.

    I have got all my cables from Amazon Italy, I connect the ATV 4K to my AVR with HDMI 2.0 passthrough to my 4K HDR TV and everything is just fine. Up to 60Hz with YCbCr 4:4:4/RGB Low/RGB High, HDR 4:2:2. Less than €12 for two cables. Plus a third cable I bought before the ATV 4K (used between the AVR and TV because it's shorter).
