Does your Sony TV have an HDMI port?

I am prepared to buy a new tv if i need a smart tv
Technician: Joel Kalman, Electrical Engineer replied 7 months ago

Good. You can get an Apple TV set-top box and an HDMI cable and connect the Apple TV box to the TV. This will allow you to display your iphone content on your TV. You do not need a smart TV to do this.

Can i buy a cheaper non Apple product?

I hook an apple tv to the tv by way of dvi cord and my phone can wireless connect to the connected box?
Technician: Joel Kalman, Electrical Engineer replied 7 months ago

It's an HDMI cable. You have to purchase it separately. The Apple TV will also stream video programs on you TV. If you something cheaper, you can get an Apple Lightning Cable.

The Lightning Cable is basically a Mini HDMI and Micro USB adapter for an iphone. if you are going to get one, you should wait until you get your iphone 6, because the connector changed between the iphone 5 and 6.

I apologize for the misinformation.. Apple changed the connector for the iphone 5, and it is the same for the iphone 6. Alli phones before the iphone5 had a large 30-pin connector. The Lightning Connector is 80% smaller and is reversible.
