Does owning a HDTV mean that I am watching in high definition?

Not necessarily, but usually. As well as an HDTV, it needs to have an HD decoder built-in, (or an external set top box) that can receive the HD signals and a TV service offering high-definition programmes, many of which are free. There was a confusing period in the late 2000’s where many TV’s said they were “HD Ready” but you need to check that they can decode an HD broadcast. If they can’t you may need an extra set-top-box.
