To watch your iPod/iPhone content on your television, you will have to purchase an optional AV cable directly from Apple, the Apple Store or your local electronics retailer that carries genuine Apple products. This cable can vary depending upon your model of iPod/iPhone, and it is important to purchase the correct one. You also must know if your television has component (preferable) or composite video input available before buying the cable. Make sure that if you have an iPod touch, iPhone, or newer nano or classic that you purchase a genuine Apple cable, because they contain a chip which enables video playback through the cable. If you use a third party cable, the video will not work.
Apple Component AV Cable (works with all iPhones and video-capable iPods, including classics, nanos, and touches.) Apple Composite AV Cable (works with all iPhones and video-capable iPods, including classics, nanos, and touches.) Once you have the correct cable in your possession, connect one end into your iPod/iPhone’s plug and the other into your television (match the colors of the cable plugs to the corresponding colors on the audio and video inputs on your TV).
If you have an iPod classic or nano, you will need to set the TV Out to On in your Video Settings >. On your iPod touch or iPhone, the video cover will be shown while you play your video. You can access the Chapters by tapping on the “list” icon on the controller at the bottom right of the screen.
