We have a two solutions for you.

Solution #1. - Use Apple TV



 
AppleTV will allow you to wirelessly mirror the screen of your iPhone 5 or 4S to your HD TV.

You will be able to sit on your couch and stream movies, videos, slideshows, play music or surf the web with your iPhone 4S and see it on your HD TV.

If you have the iPhone 3GS or 4 you will still be able to wirelessly stream movies, videos, slideshows and apps that support video out to your TV.

It is by far the easiest and most convenient way to connect your iPhone to a HD TV.
To connect the Apple TV to your HD TV you will also need a HDMI cable. The HDMI cable can carry both the video and audio signals to your HD TV. It is a fully digital solution so it will provide the highest possible picture quality.

HDMI Cable
 
Plug the cable into the HDMI output of the Apple TV  and into a HDMI input on your HD TV.

Solution #2. - Use an Apple Digital AV Adapter



 
The Apple Digital AV Adapter will allow you to connect your iPhone to a HD TV using HDMI cable. This will carry both video and audio to the TV.

If you have an iPhone 5, 6 or newer you will need to use an Apple Lightning Digital AV adapter.


 
For the iPhone 4s, 4, 3GS and 3 you must use the Apple Digital AV Adapter

These adapters will allow you to mirror the screen of your iPhone 5 or 4S to your TV. If you have an iPhone 3GS or 4 you will still be able to stream movies, videos, and slideshows to your TV. It is easy to hook up but not as convenient as an Apple TV for connecting your iPhone to a HD TV.

 
To connect your iPhone to your HD TV using an Apple Digital AV Adapter you will also need a HDMI cable. The HDMI cable can carry both the video and audio signals to your HD TV. It is a fully digital solution so it will provide the highest possible picture quality.
