I Learned How To Afford My High Definition Channels

By: Jim Williams

For my birthday this year, my parents bought me a nice TV for my dorm room. I know, I am really fortunate to have such wonderful parents. My roommate is just as fortunate to have a roommate who has provided him with a major HDTV to observe during our late nights of studying or partying, whichever the circumstance may be at the time.

The only difficulty I found was that I couldn't afford the cable monthly charge for high definition channels. My parents told me if they bought me the TV, I would have to handle the expenditure of getting the high definition channels, if I so prefer. Of course, I need high caliber picture, why wouldn't I? I was researching a story one night and drifted off onto several sites talking about antennas.

I couldn't conceive what I was reading because it was like I had struck gold or something. It was that great. The antennas provide you with signals so you don't have to use your cable provider to acquire the signals. I thought this was awesome but I didn't truly know where I would put an antenna in a dorm room. I started thinking about it and kept reading online.

Eventually, I found something that would succeed in my room. There is a high definition picture frame. Uncanny, I know. You can put a picture in the frame, hang it on your wall and it receives a communication for high quality channels. I bought it and tried it out. It wasn't costly at all so I didn't have to worry about spending a significant chunk out of my savings.

I am glad that I did decide to buy it because I am so cheerful with it and needed to let everyone know it, especially other college students. We don't have a lot of money but we still deserve to have a pleasant television to view. We study hard and require a stress release. Now my roommate and I have many of the best channels acquirable now.

We drop way too much time in front of my television but it's fine. Another thing I figured out while doing my research is that after Feb 17, 2009, I wouldn't be able to view my tv without the high definition package from my cable company because all broadcasters will be required to send out these signals only. Now, I am all set for the switch and can maintain to observe with no problems now and in the approaching.
