This depends on the model of the TV and if the phone supports a certain technology that will interface it with the phone and the TV. If one connection method is not supported an external cable may be able to be used on the televisions HDMI port. Of course the TV would need a Mini HDMI cable or a conversion adapter in order for the output to take place.
If you are looking to use your phone to control a service providers devices, not every TV provider offers this capability. Currently the only company I know of that does this is Comcast.
