Family Convinces Me To Get a HDTV

By: Jim Williams

This year for Christmas, the big gift was Wii. My boys loved it and the entire tribe ended up loving it. We spent the whole day in front of the tv performing the different games Santa brought for the Wii.

A couple months after the Holidays, my boys are asking for a bigger and better television to go along with their game playing experience. I realize that all of their friends have one of those new HDTVs but we never saw the justification for it.

Our tv works perfectly alright and we don't truly have the cash to sink into a new HDTV. I also heard that you have to pay extra to the cable company for HDTV
service. I am not interested in paying more money than I really need to.

We already pay so much for the film channels we subscribe to and I am not willing to cancel those since we all love to see worthy movies at home. Nonetheless, I did feel that maybe it was time for an advance.

We could also take the television currently in the living room and put it in the downstairs extra room so our guests can have some private television watching.
So one day, my hubby and I went out to the store to see what we could afford.

The salesman showed us one of the less expensive HDTVs accessible and let us know that it was just as good as the bigger names. We considered it and then decided that since we always buy Pioneer, we would rather stick with a name we know.

We ended up purchasing a new Sony HDTV for only a little more than the less expensive one. The sales associate did let us know about something that made paying a bit more for the television worth it. He said there are antennas available that give you the same signals as the cable provider does.

You buy it and place it either indoors or outdoors and then you can have all the channels you would obtain through the cable company without paying for it every month. We looked into it and bought one of the antennas for outdoors.

We now have it all set up and we couldn't be happier. The boys love to play their games on the big HDTV and my spouse and I love watching movies or tv on it. I must say I should have invested in this a while ago. I am surprised with the service we receive from the antenna and the amazing picture we now receive on our tv
