yes, but what would you want to shield a digital signal from? and what is it you expect to be strong enough to corrupt the data?

Lots of things — nearby cellphones; passing motorcycles; noisy household lighting switches, etc.

that would be the case for analogue equipment but HDMI is digital, it is either off or on.

Ive got this and the 99p (ex-Dixons stock) Belkins.

The 99p Belkins are better for 99p as they are braided and a little thicker, but to be honest it wont affect day 2 day usage.

What is the reason / point for having ethernet in an HDMI cable?

I'm struggling to think of 2 devices I would need to connect this way that requires ethernet, that doesn't already have ethernet in both devices. A games console already has ethernet / wifi. A SMART TV already has some capability built in, either wifi, adaptor or ethernet, and older / non-smart devices wouldn't know what to do with an ethernet connection.

Or is it being used to transmit higher resolution images (4K x 2K in the OP), in which case TV's need to play catch up and offer more than 1080p

It is still an electrical signal passing through the cable so it can still have interference from other sources. While the chances are slim with a 1m-2m length cable, if it is poor quality there is still a possibility. You can test this with a cheap cable tap it and if the audio cuts out/crackles, or picture messes up you know it is poor.

These cables seem to be made with decent quality so should be perfect. Better spending 49p more for something that seems of a decent build, rather than a cheap cable that may or may not even be able to do audio return channel etc. despite what the listing says.

It is more for the future, you can connect an Ethernet cable to your TV, then all the rest of your equipment bluray, consoles, receiver, computer maybe will then only need HDMI connected to the TV. I think it is a good idea, especially in the next few years when everything will be connected to the internet, and wireless isn't always the best option for everyone, gaming especially.

Just to add, this isn't an ethernet cable stuck to a HDMI cable, it is built in, so there is only one HDMI connector on the end. Currently nothing really supports it, but future devices will not need an ethernet port as it will go through HDMI instead.
