Viewing High Definition Games On Our Television

By: Jim Williams

My spouse is a huge baseball fan. He will pay the $40 for the HD edition of the pay per view games whenever they are on. I get a little angry since I think the money is a bit outrageous for a game that only last two hours.

Nonetheless, I love my husband and if he wants HD for his games...fine. I once asked him why he didn't want to save $10 and get the standard definition one. He informed me that the picture was so much more colorful and real looking when he watched it on HD.

I decided to examine this for myself since I am an avid watcher of our HDTV. I browsed several of the HD stations and found out that we had HGTV and HD History. I started watching my programs like "Dirty Jobs" and "Blow it up" on those channels instead of the regular ones.

I must declare the HD channels were much more pleasant to the eye on my HDTV than the others were. Everything was so much brighter and the color was so much truer than with the other channels. I tried to go back to the other channels once and I just couldn't do it.

I wanted the better ones! One day my spouse came into the room and without even asking he said, "I see you have finally backed down and you're watching the better picture quality." I didn't reply because I knew he was right and I should have let myself see what he meant when he just had to have the fight for $40.

Sometimes you have to listen to your spouse because he truly does know what he is talking about with technology. I am so happy that I backed down, I guess it was time. So now that I am all thrilled about this new television watching experience, my spouse told me something else that excited me.

On Feb 17, 2009, all broadcasters will be transmitting high quality signals, which mean ALL of my shows will look as great as these do. I can watch "Nip/Tuck" and "ER" in a completely new way. Anyway, the reason I am writing this is for all of you girls or guys who haven't gave these channels a chance.

I thought there was no difference at first too but now I am hooked. It's awesome what technology has done with televisions and I am excited to see what's in store for us down the road!.
