It's a fairy dust refiller port.  Every 4 years, you should have a tech come out to refill the fairy dust to allow the TV to continue working.

This is a new feature that Sony is testing out on a few of their TV models.

If look to the right, that appears to be a symbol for an antenna.

 

With RCA jacks, this appears to be an analog TV.

It appears to be a broken coaxial jack to me.

Re: Tv port help

I concur with slim. It seems to be a broken or incomplete coax.
