The correct Sentence would be ‘I bought an HD television set’ because in Indefinite article ‘an’ performs the same function as ‘a’ but ‘an’ is used before singular countable nouns which begin with a vowel sound (a, e, i, o, u). Remember The initial sound is important, not the spelling. Therefore, they have the article ‘an’ before them.
