Mom And Dad Did The Unexpected!

By: Jim Williams

For my birthday this gathering, my parents bought me a wonderful TV for my dorm area. I know, I am really serendipitous to have such wonderful parents.

My roommate is just as serendipitous to have a roommate who has provided him with a great HDTV to watch during our late nights of studying or partying, whichever the case may be at the time. The only problem I found was that I couldn't afford the cable monthly rate for high definition channels.

My parents told me if they bought me the TV, I would have to pay the cost of getting the high definition channels, if I so decide. Of course, I want high degree picture, why wouldn't I? I was researching a project one night and drifted off onto some 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 major. The antennas provide you with signals so you don't have to use your cable provider to get the signals.

I thought this was awesome but I didn't really know where I would put an antenna in a dorm area. I started thinking about it and kept reading online. Finally, I found something that would succeed in my shack. There is an high definition picture frame.

Uncanny, I know. You can put a picture in the frame, secure it on your wall and it receives a communication for high quality channels. I bought it and tried it out. It wasn't pricey at all so I didn't have to worry about dropping a large chunk out of my piggy bank.

I am happy that I did decide to buy it because I am so happy 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 need a stress release. Now my roommate and I have some of the best channels available now. We spend way too much time in front of my television but it's okay.

Another thing I figured out while doing my research is that after February 17, 2009, I wouldn't be able to watch my tv without the high definition package from my cable provider because all broadcasters will be required to broadcast out these signals only.

Now, I am all set for the switch and can remain to watch with no problems now and in the approaching.
