I have used a HDMi to DVB-T unit worth $US100.
This converts the HDMi signal to Digital terrestrial broadcast that you then receive with your TV in 1080 HD.
HDMI DVB-T Modulator Convert HDMI Extender signal to digital DVB-T HDMI TO DVB-T Modulator TV Receiver Support RF Output

As for the HDMi cable length, I don't know.

An added advantage of that dvb-t sender is you can use it to record the HDMi video output of other boxes by recording the DVB-T signal in another device.
I do this to get good screen shots of the Freesat unit menus.
V8 Nova ----- DVB-T sender ----- V8 Golden terrestrial input ----- recorded to USB ----- VLC player screen shots.

My review of the DVB-T sender is here.
One change: I found that you could get many channels with different names if the source channel was different each time.
Changing frequency while using the same channel on the input makes your TV over write the older channel.
Channel names can not be changed, but the manufacture was saying there is a way to do that.
I note there is a place on the circuit board of the DVB-T sender for a USB port.

HDMI is a slippery standard. No max length is listed. Instead actual measurement is required. I think some vendors skip that and just cross their fingers. I've seen 40' listed as possible with really high quality cables. personally I'd stay with 20' or less, especially with cheap cable. My longest (currently) is 12' and is the cheapest I could buy. I was surprised it worked. A friend has a 20' and it works great.

There are some companies that make a hdmi to ethernet to hdmi converter if you need long distance video (up to 100ft or so).
