Will Apple TV work on a Sony flat screen that is pre-HD?

What do you mean by "pre-HD"?
The apple TV can only connect directly to TVs that have an HDMI input.
With that said, you could purchase an AV receiver with HDMI inputs that has a monitor or other video output that can down convert from digital to analog signals and connects to your "pre-HD" TV. However, this is an added expense. You may as well just join the digital age and purchase a digital TV with HDMI inputs.

You might be able purchase a hdmi to rca cable and use that.
But by using that cable you wont experience HD movies/TV shows.
